Look forward to large offers of culinary specialties, with langos, burger and Franconian food, while enjoying a diversified music program in the large festival tent.

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.

Hint: look at our Face­book-fan side! Here you find inte­res­ting news, the program and infor­ma­tion in advance. Inquire under

Possi­bi­li­ties of arrival:
We strongly urge you not to come by car because finding parking space around the festival grounds during the festival is diffi­cult. Leave your car at home and use instead the train, bus or taxi service. By using public trans­por­ta­tion you protect the envi­ron­ment and you can fully enjoy the Bayreuth folk festival.

Getting there with public trans­por­ta­tion from the city 
If you are coming from the city it is easy to get there. Trans­port compa­nies have created a special trans­por­ta­tion plan which is applied during the folk festival, so that you can get to the festival safely and comfortably.

But even if you come from surroun­ding regions to the Bayreuth folk festival, getting there is no problem. Here too are nume­rous possi­bi­li­ties to get there by train or bus, as well as with special travel arran­ge­ments during the festival time.
