Welcome to the Old Town Festival

Old Town Festival sounds like just swaying to folk music to you? You couldn’t be more wrong. Every year in Herzogenaurach there are three days of “meet and mix” of traditional craftsmanship and modern sports performances, Franconian bratwurst and cevapcici, and: of folk music and rock music. The next Old Town Festival takes place from June 9 to 11, 2023.

During the traditional Old Town Festival in Herzogenaurach, you will learn about the offers of the various clubs and associations in Herzogenaurach and about how deep the roots of honorary commitment are in our town, when strolling over the market square and through Hauptstraße (main street). Additionally, booths offering specialties from many different foreign countries invite you to stay for a while. Learn about the twin towns of Herzogenaurach as well! Amongst others, the Stadtjugendkapelle (brass band) creates a cosy atmosphere with their music. And at night? Numerous bands on different stages set the town center on fire.
