Festivals in Mainz

Celebrating in the Mainz Way

The lively, cosmopolitan city of Mainz celebrates year round. On Fastnacht, dancing is the order of the day in dancehalls and on the streets. On the occasion of the Johannisnacht (Johannes night) in June, we celebrate Johannes Gutenberg, the city’s favourite son. A late summer tip is the wine market in the city park. And at the festivals of the various municipal districts, you will really get close to the people of Mainz.
