Bremen Events — Folk Fairs, Samba Carnivals, Bicycle Races

The Bremen event calendar is always filled with new and interesting attractions. From Germany’s oldest folk fair, to a samba carnival, to international music festivals — there’s always something going on in this cultural city.

Freimarkt Fair

This Bremen event is a seventeen day extravaganza that takes place every fall. The citizens claim that Freimarkt Fair is the oldest festival in Germany! Each year over four million people descend on the historical town square for the festivities.

Highlights include live music, drinking and dancing, then culminate in a large parade. Freimarkt usually runs from mid-October through early November.

Samba Carnival

You might not expect to find samba music in a northern German city, but often this city will surprise you. The Bremen Samba Carnival starts every year in February. You can check out the samba beats and percussion bands that come from Bremen, other German cities, and even some international locations.

Be sure to bring your mask if you decide to join in on the late winter fun. ;-)

Six Day Races

Cycling enthusiasts take note! This annual Bremen event is a chance to watch some of the world’s fastest cyclists compete against each other in a breathtaking speed race. However, the fun doesn’t end with the race. There’s plenty of side entertainment, from live music, food and other entertainment, that make this event a prime attraction.

Jazzahead

Jassahead is a festival that gives you several opportunities to experience the culture of jazz music. There’s the live performances that you would expect from such an event, but even more than that. You can listen to a lecture, see an exhibit or participate in a seminar on this unique brand of music.

The music usually begins in April of each year.

Night Of The Proms

In December, check out the Night Of The Proms, a musical concert of pop and classical music. The idea comes from Belgium students, who were inspired by promenade concerts that were once held in Britain.

Head to the AWD Dome to get in on the popular event.
