Lumpenball, “rag ball,” a “German Mardi Gras.” As Mardi Gras ends the carnival season so does Lumpenball, and Lent begins (photo courtesy of Bonny Eberly).

Join us as we celebrate the end of the Fasching (carnival) season with our annual Lumpenball. This year we are joined again with our friends from the east – the Czechoslovak Moravan Club of Endicott, NY.

This year we will be entertained by Jude’s Polka Jets II and the Czech Club Dancers presenting in traditional dances for the season. The highlight of the evening is always the burial of the string bass, representing an end to revelry as we enter the solemn season of Lent.

We encourage everyone to dress in costume – often a hobo for a man and for woman, let’s say maybe you are dressed in a bit of a revealing manner hoping to draw some attention and maybe a few drinks from amorous males!

$5 / admission (food and beverage extra)

A full cash bar will be available as well as a broad selection of foods a-la-carte pricing –
…and assorted pastries and sweets.

Looking forward to seeing everyone for the first party of the new year!

Lumpenball history ~ The Fasching (carnival) season begins on Novermber 11 at 11:11 am and ends on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. It is a season of parties and revelry, but that is all cast aside as we begin the solemn season of Lent. We call our observance of this event the Lumpenball. As the party season winds down, your clothes are a bit worse for the wear and your pockets are empty, so you might resemble a bit of a hobo or beggar as you come to this party.  The evening ends with the symbolic death of the string bass (representing all music); as we bury, it will be a complete funeral party, including clergy and grieving family. A fun night for all!
