Traditional harvest festival

Autumn festival in Raurisertal

In the mountains and valleys in Salzburg Land, autumn is one of the loveliest times of the year, the weather is generally stable and the "golden valley" lives up to its name. The landscape lights up and is radiant with the autumnal hues, while the views into the distance are unsurpassable. And when the cows 'come home' from the Alpine pasture, it is harvest festival – a time for celebration. Delicious treats, produced by farmers over the summer, can be purchased and along with the traditional Alpine cattle drive, there are other exciting items on the programme. And of course there is no shortage of atmospheric music!

Harvest Festival - Opening in Rauris 2024

Every year, one of the 70 Harvest Festival towns in Salzburgerland celebrates the opening of the Harvest Festival, and this year it's Rauris!

Immerse yourself in the traditional atmosphere of our Harvest Festival and experience a day full of joy and enthusiasm. The highlight of the day is undoubtedly the big festive parade with the "Rauriser Herreitern" & "Schnalzern", magnificently decorated floats, the "Raurisker" and many other local associations. During the day, visitors can also look forward to demonstrations by the Rauris local folk group, who perform their traditional dances.

For lovers of folk music, a concert by the "Trachtenmusikkapelle Rauris" will make your heart beat faster. The sounds of the traditional instruments will enchant you and invite you to sway along.

Stroll along the stalls and discover home-made products from local artists in their most beautiful form. From self-sewn clothing and ‘Pinzgauer Doggln’ to decorative items and fascinating works of art made of wood - there is something for every taste.

The aroma of delicious delicacies fills the air. Culinary delights such as sweet and savoury doughnuts, cakes, roast pork, dumplings and so much more await you at the stalls of the Rauris farmers' wives, associations and innkeepers. From hearty specialities to sweet treats - there is something for every palate.

There is also plenty for the little ones. A varied children's programme provides fun and entertainment. Whether it's arts and crafts, face painting or games - boredom is a thing of the past!

Enjoy musical entertainment with the band ‘Ziach'n’ Roll‘ and in the evening with the band “Hannah” in a cosy atmosphere and make the day at the farmers’ autumn festival in Rauris an unforgettable experience.

On the first weekend in September from 07 - 08.09.2024, the Rathgeb family, together with the Rauris rural youth, have also come up with something really great - a farm festival with many different programme items on the theme of autumn farming, musical entertainment, agricultural machinery exhibition, children's programme, rural youth Olympics and their own cattle drive!
