Zillertal “Gauder Fest” Spring Festival

Zell am Ziller, 30.04.2019 - 05.05.2019

Every year in the first week of May, the traditional Gauder Fest – Austria’s largest spring and traditional costume festival – is held with multiple attractions. A not-to-miss-event for lovers of tradition.

The “highlight” of the annual Gauder Festival is the traditional festival parade on Sunday, which has developed with its colourful costumes and music groups, historic carriages, floats, horse and oxen to the largest national costume parade of Austria.

The Gauder Fest is opened with the traditional beer tapping and the Gambrinus speech on May 03, 2019. You don’t want to miss out on the beer tapping of the super-strong Gauder beer (reputedly over 10% alcohol), brewed specially for this shindig. As well as eating, dancing and drinking, there’s a Radio Tirol Gala, Alpine-style wrestling, a Gauder Market, and an animal expo on Saturday and an outdoor mass on May 05, 2019. There will be live music and entertainment for all ages at the festivity area, on the sports field and on pavilion square.
