Stuttgart Springfest

Date: Apr 28, 9 a.m. - Apr 29, 2 a.m.

If there is one thing that we have learned while living in Germany, it is that the Germans really know how to throw a party! Every season in Germany seems to offer a festival (or five) and with the coming of Spring, we usher in Frühlingsfest season.
 
This festival, held in Stuttgart, attracts approximately 1.5 million visitors annually, making it the largest and most well attended spring festival in Europe! The festival itself, kicks off on a Saturday. It all begins with the mayor tapping the beer keg in a ceremony held at noon inside of the Zum Wasenwirt tent at the Cannstatter Wasen (Bad Cannstatt fairgrounds). Then, the fun really begins! Food vendors, entertainers, craftsmen, carnival rides, and of course, plenty of food and drinks abound. There is a little something for everyone!
