That was women's power: For the first time, the Warngau Dirndl Association put on a major event itself. The Diwa wine festival at the sports field experienced a successful premiere.
Warngau - It took a while before the dance floor filled up. But after a tough start, a number of visitors to the first Warngau Diwa Wine Festival on Saturday (3 June) cheerfully swung their legs, inspired by the lively tunes of the Vaschiabamusi, a popular dance music from the district. The early summer festival at the sports field was the first major event that the Warngau Dirndl Association, founded in 2015, organized on its own.
"We are very pleased that so many have come," says Chairwoman Theresa Gschwendtner. She estimates that about 400 guests from Warngau and the surrounding area were entertained in the tent. A tent was set up at the sports field, and a specially converted construction trailer of the Sachsenkamer boys served as a bar.
According to Gschwendtner, about 30 girls were involved in the preparation and implementation of the wine festival. "We wanted to show what women's power can do," says the chairwoman. The local boys were happy to help. "You just can't do without them," laughs Gschwendtner.
For the young sextet of the Vaschiabamusi it was almost a home game; most of the musicians live on Lake Tegernsee, Jakob Hampel on the flugelhorn is at home in the neighbouring Wall. "People liked it," the chairwoman observed. The weather was suitable, and there was hardly any competition event in the wider area on this Saturday.
According to Gschwendtner, it is not yet clear whether the Diwa Wine Festival – the abbreviation stands for Dirndl Warngau – will be held for a second time next year: "Let's see if it will be something again next year."
