When the summer vacations come to an end and everyone has returned from vacation, there is a huge annual festival for families on the grounds of the monchshof brewery in the blaich. It has been like this for 29 years – and it will be like this again this year.
On 8. September from 13 o’clock the family-fun-festival will take place again. "It should be simply a rough celebration at the end of the vacations. It is certainly the biggest festival of its kind in northern bavaria", explained district administrator klaus peter sollner at the presentation of the program.
Up to 10,000 visitors
The mega-event is initiated and organized by the district youth work, the district youth ring and the monchshof in kulmbach. The festival is financially supported by the savings bank kulmbach-kronach, the company noris-color and the aid organization of the lions club kulmbach-plassenburg. "The weather should be good, we expect again 5000 to 10 000 guests on this afternoon", according to the district administrator.
The idea behind the festival is that the local associations and institutions can present themselves. "Around 400 volunteers will be on duty on this day", explained district youth worker jurgen ziegler.
Corner for the youngest
The associations and institutions from the city and district of kulmbach offer activities, lots of action, demonstrations, but also information. "There will also be "hupfburgen", melanie dippold from the kulmbach district office. The family-fun-festival is aimed at families with children. There is also an area for the very youngest: the mini-club with age-appropriate games and small bouncy castles. "The adults don’t have to just watch either. They will also be included", revealed dippold. There will also be a baby changing and breastfeeding area.
"The family-fun-festival has grown enormously in the last years", stressed sparkasse chairman harry weib and paid respect to the fact that the basic idea has remained. The festival focuses on the work of volunteers and showcases the wide range of leisure activities available in the district. The savings bank is on site with its mobile branch, weib emphasized.
Flea market for children
Again this year there will be a mega flea market by children for children. For sale should be well preserved toys.
Uli wagner from the monchshof museums also had good news to share: although the brewery is not currently leased, all hungry and thirsty visitors are well catered for. The field kitchen of the BRK will drive up and prepare delicious dishes. There will also be cheap drinks at the food trucks in the beer garden.
