This year, visitors can expect the opening of the fairground A full range of discounts and special offers. All visitors have the opportunity to save up to €50 on all participating rides and shops as well as snacks via a discount voucher campaign. The theme for this year’s fairground opening is: “Friday = Savings Day!” The coupon sheet is also available for download at For last-minute visitors, coupon papers are available at the ticket office at Schützenplatz. Ukrainian children who had to flee the war have free rides on all the games on Friday evening. Your parents will be treated to some free drinks.

Schützenplatz will once again present a complete and coherent picture of popular and new rides. In addition to popular rides like bumper cars, brick dancers, Hollywood stars and baby carousels, festival-goers can look forward to the Flip Fly swing, well known from Munich’s Oktoberfest. The X-Force rides, one of the highlights that only celebrated its world premiere in 2017, and the Outback-Adventure running shop will provide great fun.

The best music program in the categories of parades, dance and party music will be presented again on each Schützenfest day. Traditional highlights include the large concert in the churchyard as well as the large tattoo with the final fireworks display on Saturday evening. The tattoo is done in the churchyard, where the former Steinbusch complex no longer provides space for such a traditional event.

Fed up with the brass band’s march and music!
At the Marefa Archery Festival, it is impossible to imagine life without the musical program supporting traditional parade music and brass band music. It shines with the national and international greats who have accompanied the festival throughout the club’s history. In addition to concerts on the catwalk and big tattoos, this year the focus is mainly on the remembrance parade, which all the clubs in the Schützenkreis Altenkirchen are invited to attend. In addition to the city’s local heroes and the Fire Brigade of Knowledge, seven other bands will ensure the right beat. These are the Frankfurt Clan Pipers, the Scheuerfeld Music Association, the Birken-Honigsessen Mountain Band, the Morsbach Musical Association “Klangwerk”, the Brandscheid marching band, the Friesenhagen Music Association “Concordia” and the Brunken Music Association.

Mood, dance and good mood with Barbed Wire, Aischzeit, UnART and DJ Stocki – Anniversary highlight: VoXXclub
But it’s not just traditional parade music and brass music that defines the festival’s events. Barbed Wire from Tauberbischofsheim let her rip Saturday evening into a marquee with an elaborate stage show. With vintage music, rock classics, chart-breaking, party songs and alpine power, Aischzeit on Sunday evenings and Monday afternoons after the morning city concert and fire brigade, everyone gets their money.
On Monday night’s “Massive Graduation Party” will be showing UnArt from Siegen, a nationally known live band – with the active support of DJ Stocki.

The band VoXXclub, popular from radio and television, was hired as the highlight of the anniversary. On Sunday evenings from 9pm they’ll move the Fetzelt to dance and swing along with “the best” of the greatest hits. Tickets for this exceptional concert are available from all Eventim ticket offices, online at or at the knowledge library.

The Gun Club of Knowledge points out that for health reasons, drinks in a marquee are only sold through beverage brands. Several ticket counters will be set up in the tent for this. As of this year, cash payments to the waiter are no longer possible. In addition, starting this year, it is possible to pay with an EC card in the tent. (evening)
