Europe’s largest spring festival invites you to celebrate
When the days slowly get longer and the temperatures get warmer, the festival season starts in the state capital of Baden-Württemberg.
We welcome you to the 80th Stuttgart Spring Festival from April 21 to May 13, 2018.
The Stuttgart Spring Festival was founded as a kick-off event for the showmen in the new travel season after the respective winter break, which begins with the end of the Christmas markets. The founding year is unfortunately no longer understandable since the festival was very likely – especially in the early years – several times failed.
The Stuttgart Spring Festival – like its big brother the Cannstatter Volksfest is a strong economic motor for the city and the region. In addition to the visitors, bakers, butchers, suppliers, retailers, service providers, hotels, transport companies etc. benefit as well.
