Carnival tradition for more than 500 years

The tomcat Rumskedi is the symbol of the Beckum Carnival

The people of Beckum are proud of a very long carnival tradition. The oldest record of this is from the Heischegänge of the Bauknechtsbruderschaft in 1467.

The Carnival Room in the City Museum provides an overview. Among other things, historical films, costumes, medals and posters are on display. Modern technology brings the carnival room to life and makes carnival songs and carnival speeches resound.

The carnival umbrella society "Well, here we are again" also gives a good overview of the Beckum carnival tradition.
