The 42nd Annual Homburg May Festival

Thursday May 26 to Sunday May 29 - 2016

This year’s traditional Homburg May Festival will take place over the last weekend at the end of May - which the organisers hope will guarantee good weather. Due to the public holiday on Thursday May 26 this year's festival will be extended to four days of fun for the whole family.

Four days long - A whole host of events - All for free!

Big Wheel Homburg May Festival

The Homburg pedestrian zone from the Marktplatz to the Christian-Weber-Platz, and Ilmenauer-Platz will host a wide variety of festival events.

This year for the first time the concerts will take place on three open-air stages. The main stage will be moved to a new location in the Talstrasse. The other two stages will be located on the old Market Place and "am Rondell" in front of the Homburger Hof.

In the streets around the city center there will be many stalls offering local delicacies, refreshments, local beers and wines throughout the weekend and in the Ilmenauer Platz and the La-Baule-Platz there'll be activities for the kids. On Sunday street entertainers and walking acts "The Four Shops" & "Stone Age" will liven up the atmosphere.

This year's festival highlight will be found towering over the Christian-Weber-Platz: a gigantic 50 Meter Big Wheel which will offer a magnificent view over the city's rooftops and the surrounding area.

Along the "Car Mile" on the far side of the Kaiserstrasse not far from the "Rondell" local car dealers will be presenting a selection of cabrios and sports cars in anticipation of the coming summer season.

Get a taste of Homburg hospitality - Come rain or come shine the Homburg May Festival is well worth a visit.
