Young Talents

Support for youngsters

The Fasnachts-Comité strives to keep the traditions of the carnival alive by promoting and encouraging the participation of children in the carnival. Each main clique («Stammvereine») has a youth section («Junge Garden») that supports interested youngsters to learn about the carnival tradition, offers the possibility to learn to play the drum or piccolo flute and the chance to become part of the clique.

In the «Junge Garden» youngsters become familiar with all aspects of Basel Fasnacht, i.e. developing the clique's Fasnacht theme («Sujet»), creating and producing masks and costumes, painting lanterns, writing poetry – or simply to learn and become part of the special spirit of Basel.
The Fasnachts-Comité support every effort of the cliques to promote youngsters.
