At the end of November, the Winterfest will again pitch its tents in the Volksgarten in Salzburg. With its 16th edition, the biggest festival for contemporary circus in the german-speaking area promises again a diverse and astonishing program with well-known troupes from different parts of the world.
The Winterfest 16 takes place from 30th November 2016 until 8th January 2017 in the Volksgarten Salzburg.
The festival program will be published in autumn.
The Winterfest is especially happy about its own circus tent this year. It took some time, but thanks to the amazing support from the Association of friends of contemporary circus as well as the charity event from the Salzburger Nachrichten - where a lot of friends of the circus took over a sponsorship for a piece of the tent - the purchase was made possible. Also the state of Salzburg as well as the city of Salzburg supported the project. The Winterfest-Team would like to express its gratitude and thanks to all people, who helped to secure the future of the festival.
Therefore it is possible for well-known artists to fascinate the audience in the Salzburger Volksgarten with their extraordinary and stunning performances in the future.
