Experience the Harvest Festival in Maria Alm on the Ebengut
A holiday all about tradition and old customs
As soon as the summer leaves mountains and valley, the province of Salzburg starts a very special season. The Harvest Festival unites tradition and old customs with conviviality and snugness. Festivities and events turn the Harvest Festival in Maria Alm into an amazing experience – also on and around the Ebengut, most certainly.
The Harvest Festival in the Pinzgau
The Harvest Festival has been putting the entire province of Salzburg under its spell every late August to October since 1995. Rural culture is the main focus during big festivities and parades, crafts displays and courses, music and culinary art. Transhumance in Maria Alm and many other Harvest Festival villages kicks off the festivities. Traditionally adored cattle are driven back to the farm in the valley after a summer on lush alpine meadows during a massive ceremony.
