Imst “Buabefasnacht”

Imst, 05.02.2023

Two years before the main event, the Imst Schemenlaufen, the Buabefasnacht (Boys Carnival) is held in Imst. Some 400 young lads aged between six and 16 turn Imst on its head during their carnival celebrations.

The famous Imst Schemenlaufen Parade is certainly the most important in Tirol if not one of the most important in all the Alps. Held every four years, the Imst Schemenlaufen was declared a “World Cultural Heritage” by UNESCO in 2012.The Buabefasnacht (Boys Carnival) is the small brother to this event, held every four years as well. Months and months of frenzied preparations precede this century-old spectacle, which possesses a mystical attraction no one can resist. Around 400 young lads aged between six and sixteen turn Imst on its head during their carnival celebrations, which are watched by some 10,000 enthralled spectators.
