Biggest fun fair on the Rhine

13–22 July 2018
Dating back more than 700 years and still going strong, Düsseldorf’s St. Sebastianus shooting club boasts more than 1,500 members. With the biggest fun fair on the Rhine the club will be celebrating the day of its patron saint, St. Apollinaris (23 July). As part of the event, the “Historic Procession” on 15 July is a spectacle to behold, as more than 3,000 uniformed shooters, marching bands, teams of horses and carriages wind their way through the streets in what is one of Germany’s largest parades.

For no less than the 117th time, the big funfair city will be erected in 2018 on its traditional, picturesque site, on the Oberkassel Rheinwiesen. These meadows, which have an area of 165,000 sqm, will provide space for stallholders from both Germany and abroad, and a wide range of rides, guaranteeing fun for all the family.

Another high point will be the fireworks displays on the last Fridays of the fair (20 July 2018).


Fun fair opening times:
Mon – Fri from 2.00 p.m.,
Sat from 1.00 p.m.,
Sun from 11.00 a.m.

Organiser:  
St. Sebastianus Veranstaltungs GmbH
