Highlight of every summer
The Anifer Kirtag is almost treated as a secret holiday. It traditionally takes place every year on the first weekend in August. Customs and traditions are the focus of this festival. Anyone who has always been looking for a good reason to buy a Salzburg costume: the Anifer Kirtag is definitely the best ever!
That the Kirtags weekend is sunny and hot every year seems to be destiny. Because when Anif celebrate, the sky is happy too. The best traditional costume is taken out of the closet, the shoes are cleaned and the family is brought together. People laugh, enjoy, dance, meet old friends and make new friends, children romp on the dance floor and swing their skirts when the band plays.
Modern summer night fairy tale
The many visitors are taken on a very special musical journey. From an open air concert by the Anif music band to the grand finale with a DJ, there is something for young and old at this Kirtag.
Sunday, the last day of the festival, is always dedicated to the tradition of the village. After the church service for the patronage, the Anif band will play for the traditional Kirtagsfrühschoppen from 11 a.m. After the modern summer night festival of the previous day, you can now enjoy village conviviality and wonderful brass music, including hearty meals. The end of the weekend is traditionally the "Rainermarsch" every year.
If you visit Anif in August, the Kirtag should be marked red in the calendar. Because it is an experience that you will not forget for a long time and that will always put a smile on your face with the pure memory
