ABOUT US

The Rheinischer Verein was established in 1890 by Germans from the Rheinland. Originally to become a member of our club, you had to be from the Rheinland, Köln, Düsseldorf or Mainz the traditional Hochburgen des Karnevals. Karneval membership was exclusively male and traditions where strictly adhered to. Today, over a hundred years later we accept all sponsored newcomers. Our mission statement is to uphold our Rheinland Karneval traditions. Our Verein has several groups. Our focus is to promote our traditions of Karneval into a bigger family event.

OUR VISION

We celebrate Karneval in the German  Rheinland tradition and promote German heritage.

WHAT WE DO

We organize dances, fests and other events to promote the Karneval traditions and  Gemütlichkeit.

OUR COMMUNITY

Our organization is made up of several groups. You don't have to be German to participate.  The only requirement is you want to have fun.
