HeuART & Harvest Festival
The most beautiful traditional festivals in Tennengau
What would a region like Tennengau be without its living traditions? Traditions play an important part in the lives of locals here. And vacationers from near and far are cordially invited to participate in the celebrations. The highlight of the year is undoubtedly the popular Lammertal HeuART festival at the end of August / beginning of September.
HeuART Festival in SalzburgerLand
The world's biggest parade of figures made out of hay clearly shows that hay is far more than dry grass - it's also art! "HeuART", as we say here, something we clearly demonstrate every year in Lammertal. The figures are made out of hay with loving attention to every detail. They are a true joy to look at. And the festively adorned floats are accompanied by local bands, whip-crackers and folk-costume groups from the area. They definitely show that the region's folk-heritage events come to a climax during Harvest Festival season in Salzburg.

HARVEST FESTIVAL IN SalzburgerLand
If summer grazing season up on the high meadows has gone well, our local dairymaids and farmhands celebrate their successes with the always-popular Almabtrieb parade. The cows, about to return from their summer homes in the mountains, are decked out in all kinds of fancy regalia, then driven as a herd back to the valley below. As a reward for all their hard work, the hill farmers are greeted by a farm festival, where homemade products, typical regional dishes and home-distilled schnapps are served. Join us during your holidays in Tennengau and experience for yourself the sincere, unaffected hospitality of Salzburg's farming community.
Tennengau's five participating Harvest Festival towns - Abtenau, Annaberg-Lungötz, Bad Vigaun, Kuchl and St. Martin am Tennengebirge - and their residents invite you to be part of the festivities. Harvest Festival in SalzburgerLand takes place every year from the end of August until the beginning of November.
