Cannstatter Volksfestverein e.V.

Stuttgart’s own version of Oktoberfest, known for its vibrant beer tents and amusement rides. The Cannstatter Volksfest, often referred to as the Stuttgart Beer Festival, has a history that dates back to 1818. It was originally established by King Wilhelm I of Württemberg to celebrate the end of a period of hunger caused by the eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815, which led to a significant climatic anomaly and subsequent agricultural failures. The festival has since evolved into a major event, drawing millions of visitors annually. The Cannstatter Volksfestverein e.V. works tirelessly to maintain the festival’s unique blend of traditional customs, agricultural showcases, and modern entertainment. Through their efforts, the Cannstatter Volksfest continues to offer a rich cultural experience, featuring local foods, traditional music, parades, and a vibrant funfair atmosphere.

The Cannstatter Volksfestverein e.V. is an organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Cannstatter Volksfest, one of Germany’s most significant and storied festivals. Founded to uphold the traditions and cultural heritage of the festival, the association plays a crucial role in organizing and managing the event, ensuring that it remains a vibrant and integral part of Stuttgart’s cultural landscape.
