On January 12th, the annual proclamation by the carnival prince takes place on the market square. From January 12th to February 8th the four different traditional carnival corps hold Prunksitzungen (carnival celebrations) at Mittelrheinhalle every weekend.
From Schwerdonnerstag (women's carnival, February 12th) to Fastnachtsdienstag (Carnival Tuesday, march 17th) Andernach is in a state of endless celebration. After the "Möhnen" (female carnivalists) opened the "hot phase" on their festive day "Schwerdonnerstag" (Heavy Thursday), everybody prepares for the highlight of the carnival, "Rosenmontag" (Rose Monday). The street parade with its many festive wagons and its magnificent marching groups is pure traditional carnival foolishness. On Sunday and Tuesday parades are held in the different villages which belong to Andernach.
