Join and Support us!
The Carnival is organized by a group of volunteers, which is quite a challenge considering it is an event attended by several thousands people.
We are enthusiastic and experienced, but welcome any help. You too can get involved.
We need volunteers every year to help with preparation, organization, and/or to dress up in the costumes… We’d be grateful for any extra helping hand.

Make a contribution
It is easy via Darujme.cz. We are trying to keep the costs down as much as possible, but there are payments that simply can’t be avoided… the most costly items being technical support and circus tent hire. We appreciate all donations, no matter how small.
If you send money, either through darujme.cz, or directly to our account 2000577036/2010 (FIO), we’ll issue a receipt for your donation which is tax deductible.
What is the cost of the Carnival?
Work is volunteer based whenever possible – from transportation and mask making to organizing the procession.
But there remain many things that simply cannot be managed by volunteers.
