The 39th Annual Homburg May Festival
Friday 24 - Sunday 26 May 2013
This year’s Homburg May Festival is one week later than usual - on the fourth weekend in May - which the organisers hope will guarantee good weather.
A whole series of events - all for free!
The Homburg pedestrian zone from the Marktplatz to the Christian-Weber-Platz, and Ilmenauer-Platz will host a whole host of festival events including a flea market in the pedestrian zone, and live music on two open-air stages - Christian-Weber-Platz and Marktplatz.
For children, the center of attraction will be the Ilmenauer Platz with its carousel. A program with fun, clowns, magicians should keep kids occupied on Sunday from 14:00 hrs.
There will be many stalls offering local delicacies, refreshments, local beers and wines throughout the weekend and on Sunday afternoon all the Homburg Shops will also be open for business.
Once again this year the Homburg "Homburger Kulturgesellschaft" continues to support new, young local talent on stage at the Christian-Weber-Platz.
Homburg Flea and Antiques Market
The biggest flea and antiques market in southwest Germany, Homburg Flea and Antiques Market takes place on the first Saturday of the month, in the area known as the Forum, in front of the Homburg Rathaus (town hall) and the Landratsamt.
The flea market is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on sale are all the regular things you'd expect to find as well as antiques and handcrafts.
Visitors to the flea market are asked to use parking places in the town center or on the edge of town, and not to park in the parking lots of Aldi or Hela which are only for the use of customers of the two stores.
Am Forum, 66424 Homburg (Saar)
The next flea market will be held on June 1, 2013
