25 July to 04 August 2014 ● "on the Forchheimer beercellars"
Daily 1.00 - 11.30 pm
Each year around 26 July the Kellerwald is the center of franconian hospitality. The Annafest celebrated here since 1840 is one of the most interesting and charming folk festivals in Franconia. More than 20 beercellars (seven are open all year round) serving food and drinks. A ferris wheel and a childrens carousel are two of the many amusement rides. We also offer Bavarian music and also modern music bands. There are many stands selling anything from german sausages, barbecued food, platters and fried fish.
The first Annafest took place in 1840 in the Kellerwald which is a wonderful place to go at any time of the year. During the summer evenings it is the perfect location for a tasty platter ("Brotzeit") and a cool beer in the shady woods. In winter, a number of the beercellar´s offer delicious franconian home cooking.
30.000 people a day find enough space for dining. 450.000 - 500.000 visitors join the Annafest every year.
Family Days with reduced prices are on Tuesday and Thursday from 1.00 to 8.00 pm.
A regular bus service is provided from the town and surrounding areas to the Annafest and retour.
