The festival village

After the successful mœrs festival editions of 2017, 2018 and 2019, each with over 35,000 visitors in the newly designed festival village, things will once again become colorful around the communicative "village square" at Whitsun 2021. Outdoor stages, sound installations, interactive booths and cozy seating, crazy stuff, regional talents, music cultures, dance children's program as well as a growing food and non-food offer everything your heart desires.

Just in time for our 50th anniversary, we are moving the main part of the market back to the Schlosspark, fulfilling a fervent wish for ourselves and many long-time festival visitors.

The makers of the festival village are looking forward to creative startups and people with fresh ideas. Culinary excursions, street food, drinks, sustainable and handmade products, fair trade, upcycling, and other surprising offers. We are looking forward to newcomers and applications that enrich the festival village with creative ideas.
