Kaiserwinkl Egaschtfestl

4th June 2017 in Walchsee

Bringing in the first swathe, or the first hay Heu was once called the 'Egascht Mahd'. Based on this date and old traditions, at Lake Wachsee the 'Egascht Fest'l' is always celebrated on Whit Sunday. An extensive programme, along with the authenticity of the presentation, has meant the festival has been very popular - not only in the Kaiserwinkl but beyond Tyrol's borders, into Bavaria.
