Many villages, towns, and cities in (predominantly, but not exclusively) the southern parts of the Netherlands take their annual carnival (Dutch: carnaval) celebrations quite seriously. A long-standing and well-documented custom is the use of pseudonyms for the places concerned during the festivities. These names are recorded in name:carnaval=*.

All places with a carnival's name in September 2021. Note the geographic distribution across the Netherlands.
