Foodart festival in Tölz: 19 stalls offer delicacies from all over the world

The special thing is the artistic component

It was particularly important to her that the market takes place in the countryside. With the idyllic Franciscan garden, the ideal backdrop has been found. "This has a completely different experience value," says the deputy spa and tourism director. "Our intention was: We want a street food festival, but not the 125th street food market that looks like all the others. We also wanted to have an artistic component to it."

Stilt walkers, musicians and acrobats entertain visitors in the Franciscan Garden

Axel Berger and Simone Heitinga are responsible for this artistic part, together with the team of the artist collective "Isar-Streetart". Berger has already staged many shows in the Tölzer Land, most recently the "Journey to the Crystal Palace" in January at the Tölzer Kurhaus (we reported). In the Franciscan Garden, various artists and acrobats offer a wide-ranging program at the weekend. "We have booked international stilt walkers with impressive costumes from the Netherlands," Berger begins to list the various performances. Entertainment on Saturday afternoon will be provided by various musical interludes, such as a hands-on concert for families by the group "Double Drums", guitar sounds by Sebastian Schwarzenberger as well as rock, jazz and current hits by Paul Mark Adams.

Axel Berger and Simone Heitinga create a big show on Saturday evening

A special highlight awaits visitors on Saturday evening. When it's dark, Axel Berger and aerial acrobat Heitinga, together with other artists, create a big show with lots of lighting effects and video projections of "Isar street art". "All the artists involved in the festival come together," explains Berger. The sounds of Double Drums, the guitar playing of Sebastian Schwarzenberger and the stilt walkers result in an imaginative show, including a fire show and aerial acrobatics.

Berger: "Not a conventional street food festival"

"This is not a conventional street food festival," Berger emphasizes, "but entertainment of a different kind. We're showing something for free that others would spend a lot of money on." According to the 47-year-old, this was decided after the acrobatics show in the summer of 2021 on the former premises of the Moralt company was only available to invited guests. "That's why we're now doing something for everyone," says Berger. The big "Phantasy Show" starts at 21.45 pm.

Sunday starts quietly with a live yoga session, where everyone can participate, no matter what experience they have with yoga. "The yoga is accompanied by music and is a real treat for pleasure," promises Berger. Otherwise, there will also be music and artistry on the second day. "And we'll repeat our Saturday night show."

Getting to know graffiti workshop and instruments: There is a lot on offer for children

According to Frey-Allgaier, there is a big focus on the children's program at the street art festival. "We wanted to do something away from the typical bouncy castle, but instead do something creative," she says. For example, there is a graffiti course for the boys, as well as professional childcare that builds rafts with the little guests and then lets them compete against each other in a race. "In the Soundgarden, children can get to know instruments and try them out for themselves," adds Berger. Namely, the kora, a kind of African harp or so-called "hand-pans". If you like, you can also climb into the vertical cloth and try out this acrobatics under guidance. "A feast for all the senses and an experience for young and old," says Frey-Allgaier.

Further information: The food art festival is open on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 23 p.m., and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 19 p.m. Admission is free. The entire program can be found on the city's website under
