Tips for families

The Cannstatter Volksfest and its little brother, the Stuttgarter Frühlingsfest (Spring Festival), are characterized by their family friendliness of which the large number of stalls and rides specifically for children is proof.

Family Day every Wednesday

The highly popular Family Days have long been a good tradition at the Volksfest. Every Wednesday, the fairground ride and stall owners, festival tent landlords and market traders offer concessions all through the day on many of their attractions. There are also lots of surprises in store for younger visitors. Whether it is face painting, clowns, fairy tale carousel or a children’s railway for the little ones, there is lots to see and do for everybody at the Volksfest.

Children’s menus                  

Many stalls and the large festival tents offer special children’s portions.

Children’s rides

On many rides parents can accompany their children free of charge – the showmen are looking forward to welcoming you.

Baby care room

Baby care rooms are dotted around the festival site next to the free-of-charge toilets.

Lost children collection point

For many years now, the German Red Cross has been running a child collection point where lost children are cared for and can be collected by their families.

Exciting family entertainment

One of the special highlights for families is the Volksfest parade on the first Sunday of the festival when spectators lining the streets can marvel at the up to 3,500 participants, tractors, old craftsmen’s guilds and, above all, the wide variety of animals.
