Fairs, markets and festivals


St.Gallen’s event calendar is consistently busy throughout the year. Olma, the traditional Swiss food and agriculture fair, the OpenAir, the oldest and one of the biggest open-air festivals in Switzerland, and the Festspiele (festival), with its historical backdrop, are some of the most well-known fixtures.

Added to these are further well-established events such as the Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas market) and the Bauernmarkt (farmer’s market), the “New Orleans meets St.Gallen” jazz festival and the Honky Tonk Festival. There is always space for new events in between these renowned highlights.
