The Germania Club of Kansas City was organized in 1967 to promote a consciousness and appreciation for the German heritage, to further the social interest for its members, and to create a strong bond of friendship among members.
The Karneval (Mardi Gras) tradition in the Germania Club was initiated in 1967. Each Karneval season, the Elferaat (Council of Eleven) elects a Prince and Princess. Coronation takes place on the Saturday nearest the 11th day of November, and their reign climaxes at the annual costume ball on the Saturday before Ash Wednesday.
The Germania Club promotes close relations with German organizations in other communities. We have been pleased to exchange visits with sister clubs in St. Louis, Chicago, Topeka, Wichita, Omaha, Tulsa and Houston, as well as in Germany. The club also participates in Kansas City's annual Ethnic Festival, and has participated in the annual Snake Saturday Parade in North Kansas City.
New members are always welcome to keep German traditions and the spirit of Karneval growing in Kansas City. Please contact us for additional information!
