165. Cannstatter Volksfest on Saturday, September 25

Dear Members and guests,

please join us for a joyful visit and celebration at the
165. Cannstatter Volksfest - aka Cannstatt Beer Festival

This festival has a long tradition: still today the 24 meter high and highly decorated fruit column (Fruchtsäule) on the festival grounds is a reminder that the young, beloved Wuerttemberg.
Queen Katharina with her husband, King Wilhelm I, gave this Fest to the people of the country in 1818 at the end of a period of starvation. Today Stuttgarters together with millions of guests celebrate one of the most beautiful and largest beer festivals and fairs in the world.

Our Club reserved tables number 266 and 267 in the "Grandl's Hofbräu Zelt" (Tent).
We meet at 15:00 o'clock at the above-mentioned fruit column, it is a popular meeting point in front of most of the tents.

Your event manager Christel Baumann will hand out your vouchers for beverages and food. There is a mandatory consumption on the weekends of 3 beverages (1 liter of beer per voucher or any other beverage) and 1 meal per person (half chicken or any other food). Which totals to 32 Euro including a wrist band that allows you in and out of the tent. Please have the amount of 32 Euros per person ready. Please also note that there is a mandatory minimum tip for the waiters: 60 cents per beverage and/or food order. If you do not use all your beer chips you can still use them at next year's Cannstatter Volksfest.

We have to be in the tent at our tables by 15:30, else we might lose our reserved seats.
So please be on time - fruit column 15:00.

How to get there: we highly recommend to use public transportation. Most convenient: take the S-Bahn to Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof and from there use the U11 until the terminal stop. You are right at the main entrance of the Fest and already see the meeting point "Fruchtsäule" and the main beer tents.

We have 20 seats to sell, first come first serve, members have priority. No-shows have to pay full price.

Best regards,
