What is Fastelavn?

Fastelavn is a Danish holiday similar to Carnival or Fasching, marking the transition from winter to spring. Some of the special traditions and customs surrounding Fastelavn include decorating birch twigs (fastelavnsris), dressing up in masks and costumes, playing games, whacking a barrel full of candy, and singing the Fastelavn song about delicious cream-filled pastries (fastelavnsboller).

Who is Fastelavn for?

Fastelavn is for kids and adults alike! For the best Fastelavn experience we recommend children ages 5 and up. 

Stay tuned for more information!
