Ebbs flower parade
Vehicles in bloom
It slowly comes around the bend. Meanders past the church. Mouth wide open. Its yellow-purple spotted tail topped by green bristles. Its head towering loftily above the crowds of people. The flower heads between the wide spaces in its teeth shine out, a deep red. Floral art perfection. This is Ebbs flower parade.
A floral-filled four days
Austria’s biggest flower parade is set to take place for the 22nd time in Ebbs. Concerts. Plant parties. The ‘hits’ day. Village party. Carpets of flowers. For four full days the Haflinger village will be dedicated to the flower parade, and will inspire with a variety-packed programme of supporting events and an appearance by Hansi Hinterseer and the big parade as the highlight.

Festive open air
At 8:00 pm the Hödnerhof Arena in Ebbs starts to party. The charismatic folk music star Hansi Hinterseer comes to Kufsteinerland with his upbeat songs.

Flower sticking party, pop music day & summer night festival
A bouquet of opportunities
Anticipation meets preparation. The day before the largest flower parade in Austria is extremely busy for the participants, and also painful. For the viewers it's an amazing spectacle, and there is also musical enjoyment waiting in the fortress city.
Stuck in beauty
Thousands of flowers. Bare Styrofoam blocks. At the flower sticking party at Hödnerhof Ebbs, artistically carved Styrofoam blocks are transformed into floral artworks. Love. Patience. Teamwork. Passion. Surrounded by thousands of flowers and countless helpers, from 9:00 am the floats are brought to life at the flower sticking party.
Music in the fortress city
Pop music visits the fortress city. In Kufstein the day before the flower parade is dedicated to pop music. A large stage is set up right in the city centre Kufstein where the pop music stars perform. From 2:00 to 8:00 pm, musical enjoyment awaits at the feet of the Kufstein Fortress, surrounded by the Tyrolean Mountains of Kufsteinerland.
Celebration in Ebbs
Music. Culinary enjoyment. Turn night into day. The summer night festival brings a great atmosphere to Ebbs from 6:00 pm.
Big festival day - flower parade through Ebbs
Past the church, through the centre of Ebbs and out to the Hödnerhof Ebbs World of Flowers. Many meters tall. Colourful. Detailed. Artistically decorated. Around 50 flower-covered floats take part in Austria's largest flower parade. Styrofoam figures on trailers. Floral art in front of a backdrop of the Tyrolean Mountains of Kufsteinerland, surrounded by the picturesque flair of the Haflinger village of Ebbs. The flower floats are accompanied by music groups from the region. One of the highlights at the end of the parade is the traditional awarding of a prize for the most beautiful float, accompanied by music and a varied supporting programme, at the World of Flowers Hödnerhof.
