The Eben Fair – a festival for “young and young-at-heart“

It’s nearly that time of year again – the legendary Eben Fair is just around the corner! For 42 years now the first Saturday in October has been a fixed date in the Ebner locals’ calendar of events.  I was there on the day last year and I’d love to tell you all about it!

A full programme the whole day long

„Stephaaaaaaaanieeee, when are we going?“, my brother whines impatiently, as just like me he can hardly wait to get to the fair. “The fair will still be there, when we get there“, I answer – and I’m right, it is still there when we get there.  It’s actually open from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm, but that doesn’t mean there’s no more fun after 5.00 pm – it’s just getting started for the party animals!

Something for everyone

Bouncy castle and toy stand this side, raffle and show wood carving that side – at the fair in the centre of Eben there’s lots going on and we can’t decide what to see or do first. But then we try our luck at one of the raffles – and would you believe it – our Christmas tree will be decorated with new baubles this year!

Local delicacies!

The Eben Fair has lots of culinary delights to offer too: meat fritters, bosna hot dogs, cheese sausages, grilled chicken – there’s something to suit every taste. We unanimously go for the meat fritters with sauerkraut and “mhhhh“ – that was definitely the right decision!

Und was darf bei einem traditionellen Kirchtag natürlich nicht fehlen? Genau! Zuckerwatte und Schaumrollen! Und weil man jemandem auch mit Kleinigkeiten stets eine große Freude bereiten kann, beschließen wir, unseren Eltern (zu den neuen Christbaumkugeln 😉) auch eine Packung Schaumrollen mitzunehmen.

Ein wirklich toller Tag

Mein kleiner Bruder (der übrigens gar nicht mehr nach Hause wollte) und ich hatten jede Menge Spaß am Ebener Kirchtag und können einen Besuch wirklich jedem ans ♥ legen – egal, ob „jung“ oder „oit“!

Infos & Tipps:

Der Kirchtag findet heuer voraussichtlich am 02. Oktober 2021 von 09.00 bis 17.00 Uhr statt.

Born and bred in Salzburg, mountains, traditional customs, culinary specialities have accompanied me my whole life. The older I get and the more cultures and landscapes of other countries I get to know, the more I realise, how beautiful it really is here. That's why I particularly enjoy sharing these special characteristics of my home with you in the blogHuette.
