Stadtilm Folk Festival
Stadtilm - the city of the 7 wonders - has the largest market place in Thuringia. The size of 10,635 sqm was actually confirmed when the MDR-Thüringen did a survey in public on 1 November 2011. Every year on the last weekend in August, the Stadtilm festival takes place on this market square. You may well call it traditional, because, since 1975, the market and its adjacent streets become the cultural centre for a summer weekend every year. Jointly organised by clubs and tradesmen of the city, this festival is a highlight for the Stadtilm people and their guests. There is a vast variety of food, drink and entertaining stage shows as well as fun and games for the children. In addition to the well proven programme there is something new to hear or to see every year.

Wine Festival in Bad Sulza
Bad Sulza celebrates its wine festival always on the third weekend in August. Celebrated for the first time in 1993, the town festival has by now become a popular tradition in the Weimar area and attracts many visitors from near and far. Visitors will experience an unforgettable weekend. In addition to wine stands of different wineries from the Saale-Unstrut and Ilm-wine-growing area, live music and dance, the festival’s climax is the parade and the election of the Thuringian wine princess. This festival is the only one of its kind in Thuringia. Resident winemakers and restaurateurs present the best wines of the northernmost wine region of Europe. All this is enframed by a colourful programme of musical entertainment. Nature lovers can go on adventurous hikes along the wine trail or the nature trail. Here you can enjoy the view of the vineyards in the impressive Unstruttal. You may finish your tour with a wine tasting and a “Winzervesper” – a rustic meal of hearty ingredients – since, as is well-known, fine wines taste best where they are grown.

Onion Market in Weimar
For three days, Weimar is "on onion": on the cake, in the pan, in the braid, as arrangement, even at the onion market queen’s crown. It’s everywhere. The Weimar onion market is more than 360 years old. The vivid market life is dominated by the Heldrung onion farmers with their onion braids, dried bouquets and decorative onion crafts. The very varied music programme on the five Stages also attracts many visitors: world music, rock, pop, folk music and dixieland are on offer. This highlight always takes place on the second weekend in October.
