Folk festivals have been taboo since the beginning of the corona pandemic.
But not in all of Bavaria you just want to accept it.
In some places people are preparing despite the lockdown.
- In Hausham everything is prepared for the folk festival.
“We're ready,” says Christian Baur, chairman of the trade association that organizes the traditional festival.
“With the host Hans Seidl and the showmen, everything is clear so far.
We have the commitments.
Now it just depends on politics.
The date has also already been set: the festival is to take place from June 3rd to 13th.
If it happens despite Corona.
But this will require falling numbers and the green light from politics.
At the moment, however, the current Corona summit around Chancellor Merkel looks like a provisional extension of the existing lockdown until April.
What comes next, the further developments in the number of infections will depend on it.
In order to be broadly positioned in the event of approval, several hygiene concepts have been developed.
According to Baur, the time pressure is limited: “We have our showmen.
If there are folk festivals, ours is ours.
We have firm commitments and a variable program. "
