The Pueblo German Club was started some 51 years ago as a “Kaffeeklatsch” by a small group of women who emigrated from Germany. Over the years, we have grown tremendously and enjoyed a variety of activities together. In the fall of 2013, we made a slight change to our name and became the Pueblo German American Club.
The club’s mission is to experience the tradition, culture and language of German-speaking countries and regions through authentic activities and to foster ongoing positive communication among cultures.
We are a non-profit, open to the public and we welcome new members and patrons! Inquiries to email@example.com pueblogermanamericanclub.com
Fasching, meaning the ‘ fifth season’, is Germany’s carnival season. It starts on the 11th day of November at exactly 11 minutes after 11a.m. and ends at the stroke of midnight on Shrove Tuesday; often referred to as Fat Tuesday (the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday).
Fasching is a time of festivity and merry making. In Germany, the tradition can be traced to medieval times where many countries existed under harsh rules of kings and princes. During Karneval time, the common people took a chance at ‘living it up’ and ‘talking back to their rulers’. To avoid persecution, their antics were played out from behind masks and costumes. Parades, dancing in the streets, masquerade balls and comical skits filled the days and nights.
