The 20th Winterfest will take place from December 9th to 29th at SZENE Salzburg
A winter without a circus festival? Unthinkable! We made every effort to organize the 20th anniversary of Winterfest: A variety of innovative international and national circus companies guarantee an exciting program.
This year, the Winterfest takes place for the first time at SZENE Salzburg in the heart of Salzburg’s old town. The renowned performance location is the perfect venue outside of the circus tents in the Volksgarten. One thing is certain: In 2020 our audience will again listen to magical stories, laugh at bizarre humor and marvel at captivating acrobatics at the Winterfest.
Winterfest 20: December 9-29, 2020 at SZENE Salzburg, Anton Neumayr Platz 2, 5020 Salzburg
Details on the program and ticket sales will be published shortly
Julia Eder is the new managing director of Winterfest
Since August, project and event manager Julia Eder has been the new managing director of the Winterfest organization team and, together with artistic director David Dimitri, is responsible for the largest festival for contemporary circus in German-speaking countries. Julia Eder is a career changer in the circus sector and comes from a more scientific world, in which she deals with the “magic of knowledge” and the “enchantment of realisation”. She has been working for Salzburg Research in the field of project and event management since 2001 and is responsible for national and international projects as well as events such as the “Lange Nacht der Forschung”.
“The Winterfest is a celebration of happiness this year. For me, the Winterfest is a wonderland that you can step into and let yourself be enchanted. That is why I am more than delighted to participate in the further development of the renowned circus festival from now on. Covid-19 and the associated restrictions have presented all cultural events worldwide with completely new challenges – artistically, organizationally and economically. The task now is to strike a balance between maximum security and the touching experience of fascinating productions. With SZENE Salzburg we have developed a security concept. A big THANK YOU to all the wonderful partners and sponsors who support us this year in creating unforgettable moments for the audience, ”said the new Winterfest managing director Julia Eder.
