Carnival in NRW

08.02. - 12.02.2018

In Düsseldorf, the calendar of Carnival events features no fewer than 300 Carnival shows, balls, anniversaries, receptions and costume parties. The motto this season is ‘Jeck erst recht’ (Carnival more than ever).Before the Carnival in the state capital reaches its culmination with the Rose Monday procession on 12 February 2018, the informal ‘Kö-Treiben’ (event on the Königsallee) on 11 February 2018 provides an opportunity for some lively celebrations. Several hundred people gather together on the boulevard from 11:11, in fancy dress of course.Many bring their own music and food with them, some bringing decorative handcarts as a means of transporting them. Another highlight of the street Carnival is the barrel race in the district of Niederkassel which on the Sunday features Carnival-goers running in clogs with a cart and barrel.
