Filderkrautfest – Pointed Cabbage Festival

17 Oct 2020 - 18 Oct 2020

Can­celled in 2020 due to pub­lic health concerns!

The largest point­ed cab­bage fes­ti­val in the world hap­pens every third week­end of Octo­ber just min­utes from Stuttgart in Lein­felden-Ech­ter­din­gen. The cen­tral event is a con­test for the best Filder­kraut, a unique point­ed white cab­bage vari­ety which only grows on the Filder Plateau. It has been list­ed as an endan­gered species in the “Ark of Taste” by the Slow Food Foun­da­tion for Bio­di­ver­si­ty. The veg­etable entries are adorned, weighed, mea­sured, and parad­ed through the streets in an effort to take home the title of “world cham­pi­on cabbage.”

More than 50,000 vis­i­tors attend each year, attract­ed by the won­der­ful pro­gram and deli­cious cab­bage spe­cial­ties – while you may think first of sauer­kraut, you’ll be astound­ed at the many tasty forms this veg­etable can take! Live music per­for­mances span a vari­ety of gen­res on stages through­out the town. For the last 40 years, the fes­ti­val has been entire­ly local­ly orga­nized and oper­at­ed by numer­ous clubs and their many vol­un­teers, which makes this a tru­ly authen­tic region­al experience.
