Culture and Festivals

What would Kamenz be without its Forstfest (Forest Festival)? Following a long tradition, the school children of Kamenz (as well as the entire city) get involved with the annual St. Bartholomew's Day celebrations in August with magnificent flower decorations. In addition to impressive pageants, there are traditional funfairs with showmen, amusement rides and much more besides. Each summer, veritable torrents of music ring out over the tiers of the legendary Hutberg stage. Whether pop, rock or classical, this close-to-nature amphitheatre offers concert experiences in the heart of a spectacular backdrop. Experience other fascinating events all the year round, such as the Blütenlauf (Flower Run), the Long Night of the Churches and Museums, the Street Festival at the Monastery Gate, the Fête de la Musique and the Advent Spectaculum. Or simply let yourself in for surprises with original shows in the Kamenz City Theatre. We wish you a lot of fun!
