Austria Festivals and Events




Festivals & Events


Festivals and holidays play an important part in Austrian life. Some festivals date from pre-Christian times. One such festival takes place throughout Tyrol at the beginning of spring, when the people pretend to chase away the "evil spirits" of winter. Wearing special costumes and masks, they march through the streets and wave large sticks in the air. The name and date of this festival vary from place to place.

Vienna Jazz Festival

Vienna, 2000
Austria's love of jazz is as strong as ever, as the country that first welcomed Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis again brings the sights, sounds and numerous styles of jazz to Vienna. The festival features some of the biggest names in jazz, but also includes blues, funk and rock talents. In 1999, the festival offers special presentations of Afro Cuban music, and world music.
