Maypole and Styrian Delicacies

From April 25th to May 5th, 2024, the Riesenradplatz will be transformed into a haven for hearty, Styrian delicacies. A variety of regional delicacies, freshly tapped beer, sparkling wine, cider specialties and juices from the Styrian region await you. You can take a seat in one of the cozy huts while traditional folk music creates a beautiful atmosphere or if you feel like it, you can also dance and sing along. On May 1, 2024, the Kaiser Wiesn Emperor Johann I will enter the festival stage and make a musical appearance.

Another highlight of the festivities is the traditional raising of the maypole on April 27th at 17:00 at Riesenradplatz. Kaiser Wiesn Emperor Johann I and district leader Alexander Nikolai will accompany this solemn ceremony and support the Landjugend from Wenigzell with setting up. The so called Outback Bradler will provide musical support and as a special treat there will be a performance of the original Schuhplattler by the Wenigzell dance group.
