Fasching: A German Karneval Dance Party

Missed celebrating on Fat Tuesday? German Haus, Open House, and the Hewitt and Butterfields RAs are giving you a second chance! Go crazy like it’s the last weekend of die närrische Saison (the foolish season)!

Carnival or Mardi Gras goes by many names in German, depending on the region and dialect: Karneval (Rhineland, former Roman settlements), Fasching (Austria, Bavaria, Berlin), Fastnacht (Baden, Switzerland), Fosnat (Franconia) or Fasnet (Swabia). Whether it’s Fasching or Karneval, it is a time to let off steam and live it up before the Lenten period that once called for fasting (die Fastenzeit).

We’ll be giving away BEADS and MASKS! Costumes encouraged!

No exposed boobies please, this is a nice Reslife event. Crazy dancing and fun-having is welcomed however.

Facebook event here.

Date: Saturday, Feb. 20th
Time: 11pm – 2am
Place: German Haus, 135 High St.

    1) Reslife events, they have rules. grow up.

    2) nice way to be intolerant. what about people who are uncomfortable with nudity due to religious or personal reasons? what about survivors of sexual assault? are they not welcome at wesleyan because they may not be comfortable with public nudity? think about that next time you’re going to be a righteous dickbag
