Everyone is welcome to join, but especially those dressed up.

We uphold this old Danish tradition where we sing fastelavns songs, eat Lone’s delicious Carnival buns. There is a parade with the dressed-up children, where the best dressed gets prizes. There will be a creative corner with face painting, mask making and “Fastelavnsris”.

We also hit the barrel “with the cat” outside, there is barrels for the different age groups. Come and let loose, maybe you will become cat-queen or cat-king?

Registration is not necessary.

Please see event description in Danish below


Kom og vær med til fastelavnsfest for store og små. Alle er velkommen til at være med, men især de udklædte. Vi holder den gamle, pæredanske tradition i hævd. Vi synger fastelavnssange, spiser Lones lækre fastelavnsboller, har paradeoptog med de udklædte børn, hvor dommerne giver præmier til de bedst udklædte, og har kreativt hjørne med ansigtsmaling, maskelavning og fastelavnsris.

Vi slår også katten af tønden udenfor, med tønder til de forskellige aldre. Kom og slå løs, måske bliver du kattedronning eller konge?

Tilmelding er ikke nødvendig.
