Carnival in Numbers – 2017 Session

A particularly long Carnival season this year provided the Carnival fans with a wonderful programme of Carnival events, balls and parties in the facilities of KölnKongress.

A total of 108 carnival events with 135,000 visitors were held in the Gürzenich, the Theater am Tanzbrunnen, in the Flora, the Kongress-Saal and the Kristallsaal of the Koelnmesse under the motto "Wenn mer uns Pänz sinn, sin mer vun de Söck".


In the Gürzenich alone, there were 47 events with more than 57,000 happy Carnival fans, including four men's sessions and nine girls' sessions and three balls. The start was made by the "Korpsappell Jan von Werth of 1925 e.V." on 11th January 2017 and the curtain was brought down by the "After Zoch Party" of the Rote Funken on 27th February 2017.


We are already looking forward to the next season.
