Welcome to the

German American Mardi Gras Association (GAMGA)  

Vereinigung Deutsch -Amerikanischer Karnevals -Gesellschaften

The German American Mardi Gras Association represents the German American Karneval Clubs in the USA.

Karneval has a long tradition in Germany and is celebrated by millions of people there. Our goal is to give people in North America that same kind of feeling, the fun and the freedom of German Karneval, give them a place to celebrate the "fifth season" in America and keep a bit of German culture alive.

GAMGA celebrates one time per year an America wide event - the GAMGA Gala in Las Vegas-  with visitors from all over the world.
