Mainfest

It’s free to attend, and the events last for four days.

This festival has been going for centuries – its original purpose was for fishermen to pay homage to the river, the source of their livelihood. Traditionally, they would feast on spit-roasted oxen, drink copious amounts of wine and enjoy a firework display. Today the wine still flows from the Fountain of Justice, the fireworks still take place, and additionally there is a fairground, live music, children’s games, tombolas and shooting ranges. It’s free to attend, and the events last for four days.
