Mayrhofen Street Festival

The Mayrhofen Street Festival is a summer highlight! It takes place every year on the last Friday in July, in the heart of the Ziller Valley. On some ten stages along the main street, live acts perform an eclectic mix of classic hits to folk music and perfect party tunes.

An unmissable experience!

My family and I agree - the Mayrhofen Street Festival is the crème de la crème of festivals in the region. No similar festival attracts so many visitors, live acts or is such a long-standing tradition. And, it is enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. In fact, many tourists choose this week for their holiday especially to be part of the festival.

What makes the Mayrhofen Street Festival so special? 

The street festival is truly unique. It combines the ambience of a summer night in the heart of Mayrhofen, with a special charm, friendly people and a laid-back atmosphere, all set to the sound of good music.

Let your taste buds guide you - at the Mayrhofen Street Festival

At the many stalls along the street festival, or the “mile of treats” as I call it, you will find everything your heart (or, in this case, your stomach) desires. 

 

Hollenzen Village Community cooks their famous ‘Melchermaus’

The culinary offering ranges from barbeques to Mediterranean cuisine and Nepalese delicacies and, of course, not forgetting the delicious Ziller Valley specialties such as potato rosti with Sauerkraut, homemade ‘Zillertal Krapfen’ and ‘Melchermaus’ (rich pancake with cranberries) - my daughter Carina’s absolute favourite! All of these specialties are prepared by local restaurants and societies and have become rare delicacies, even in the Ziller Valley. That’s why locals also look forward to indulging themselves at the festival. I love to amble along the street, sampling the food at the various stalls, listening to the music in the background and simply enjoying the evening with a glass of wine or a cocktail. I have been a regular at the festival for many years and know what I’m talking about. It is simply a must-do.

What's on offer?

The preparations are already in full swing. Further highlights will include: stilt artists, pantomime artists, street stalls and slackliners. I’m personally particularly looking forward to the Tutamanta from South America. At this year’s street festival there will be dancing, singing and partying until 1am; whatever the weather. 

 

The “Baby-coaster” is a hit with the kids

Of course, the Mayrhofen Street Festival also caters for the little ones. The colourful and varied children’s program includes face painting, bouncy castle, balloon artists, a “baby-coaster” and much more. Candy floss and cream rolls will appeal to all those with a sweet tooth, young or old. And, if we’re being honest, aren’t we all more relaxed when our kids are kept busy and having a great time?
