Dear festival visitors, dear families, dear children!

From May 29th to June 8th 2020 much is offered on the Bayreuth folk festival place. Look forward to a large offer of culinary specialties with langos, burgers and Franconian food, while enjoying a diversified musical program in the festival tent.
With a wide choice of rides, there is something for every age group. On the child- and family Wednesday afternoon also our little guests get their (discounted) money`s worth. With half price rides and special offers from all other businesses, the day can be enjoyed.
We cordially invite you to our promotion days. Look forward to the American day, the miss-election and the Mallorca party, just to mention a few.
Like every year, on the first Saturday of the festival you can purchase surprise envelopes at different shops.
