Biggest fun fair on the Rhine

14–23 July 2017
Dating back 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 16 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 116th time, the big funfair city will be erected in 2017 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.

Other high points will be the fireworks displays on the last Fridays of the fair (21 July 2017).


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