Stuttgart Canstatter Volksfest
There will once again be great festivities on the Cannstatter Wasen site in Stuttgart, the beginning of the Cannstatter Volksfest (Cannstatt Beer Festival) which will offer highly traditional family fun.
All around the historical centrepiece of the harvest festival, the so-called “Fruchtsäule” – the literal translation is “fruit column” – about 320 showmen, “beer tent landlords” and market traders will present a wide diversity of attractions. Whether it’s the roller-coaster, the High Energy Carousel, dodgems or chair planes – modern fairground rides encounter popular classical rides on the Wasen.
A highly festive mood with music and tasty food is guaranteed in the magnificently decorated festival tents. What with the festival parade, the traditional festival celebrations on the first Saturday morning, the family days and, as the grand finale, the big fireworks display that is accompanied by music, the highlights of the beer festival’s traditions are once again on the programme.
