Historic Volksfest at Schlossplatz
September 26 @ 11:00 am - October 3 @ 10:00 pm
This year, the city of Stuttgart will celebrate two landmark events: 200 years of Cannstatter Volksfest and 100 years of “Landwirtschaftliches Hauptfest,” or the Cannstatt Agricultural Festival. To honor these two events and their founding father, Württemberg’s King Wilhelm I, a historic Volksfest will be held in the heart of the city at Schlossplatz. According to the official website (www.historisches-volksfest.de), the fest aims for visitors to experience the rich history and tradition of the Volksfest.
A traditional beer tent will serve popular foods from the Volksfest’s founding period, historic music and entertainment and a specially brewed anniversary beer.
Guided tours, artists, jugglers, an arts and crafts market, and fun rides including a historic merry-go-round carousel from 1905 and a “Russische Luftschaukel,” which was considered one of the first traveling Ferris wheels during the early 20th century, will be offered.
The historic Volksfest will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. For beer tent reservations, call civ. 07024-967-2247, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
