A big celebration is coming up in Böbing from 8 to 11 June: The mountain costume preservation association "D'Schnalzbergler" celebrates its 110th anniversary.
Böbing – With such a birthday you can already celebrate properly: The Böbinger Trachtenverein "D'Schnalzbergler" has now been in existence for 110 years. On this occasion, the Trachtler and numerous helping hands have organized an extensive supporting program for more than a year, which celebrates the association, its members - and in principle the whole of Böbing - for four days. "The whole village helps together," says Franz-Xaver Schaller, who is involved with the association as a secretary.
The festivities will start with a traditional Corpus Christi procession on Thursday, June 8, at 8:45 a.m. in the church square. Afterwards, the participants march in a march to the marquee, where the Böbing brass band plays for a morning pint and from 12 noon old cars roll up to the classic car meeting. While the "impromptu music" creates a great atmosphere in the tent in the afternoon, a tour of the village is planned for the classic car drivers. The first day of the anniversary celebration ends with a meeting of musicians from various bands that will play in the marquee from 19 p.m.: the brass bands from Bad Bayersoien and Böbing as well as the music bands from Rottenbuch and Schönberg.

In the following days, the music continues, with a particular appeal to young audiences. The orchestra "Kurzweil" will play on Friday, June 9, from 20 p.m.; afterwards, DJ "Darnok" will create a great atmosphere in the tent with party music (entrance fee for the evening: five euros). For Saturday evening, the Trachtler are planning a "Boarian dance" from 20 p.m. There will be music from "Die Pfaffenwinkler" and "Oimsummamusi" (admission: eight euros). "This is Bavarian-style party music," Schaller announces.
On Sunday, 11 June, the four-day festival will come to an end with a full-day programme. As early as 9 a.m., the participants line up in front of the marquee for the church procession and march together to the war memorial, where a field service with flag consecration takes place at 9.30 a.m. Afterwards it's back to the marquee, where – of course during the morning pint – we toast and eat together again.+
An association with a long history: "D'Schnalzbergler" has been around since 1913. This photo was taken in 1925.
In the afternoon at 14 p.m. there is a final procession through the village. Finally, the festivities will end in the evening with the musicians of the Böbing brass band and the Rottenbuch music band.

As Franz-Xaver Schaller says, the association expects "at least 1000 visitors" to take part in the celebrations. "1000 people fit into the tent. We hope that if the weather is good, we will be able to receive even more visitors outside." In addition to the villagers, the association also expects members of foreign traditional costume associations to join in the celebrations as guests. According to Schaller, "D'Schnalzbergler" have invited a number of external associations that maintain friendly relations with the people of Böbingen – and some of whom travel long distances. "A bus with 50 people comes all the way from Chiemgau," Schaller says happily.
