The safe homecoming of the cows is celebrated with a huge folk music festival at the upper town square during the Kufstein Cattle Drive in September.
The animals will return from their summer grazing grounds to their winter quarters down in the valley in Kufstein. Around 2:30pm, you too can admire the beautifully decorated animals and celebrate the safe homecoming of the cows together with the farmers at an original folk festival at the upper town square. Celebrations commence by 10:30am. The Kufstein Town Brass Band will give a concert at 12:30pm and there will be great music with traditional dancers and local heritage groups. Artisans display their ancient handicrafts and traditional techniques, which will be sold at Tirolean and Bavarian market stalls. Staples of Tirolean cuisine, such as ‘Kiachl’ and ‘Blattl’, are prepared by farmer’s wives and a lively children’s entertainment program awaits.
