August 23 – September 11: D’Schueberfouer
Luxembourg’s funfair is in full swing and as usual offers some new games and attractions. Check out their website in 4 languages which gives you all the information!
The main events still to come are:
September 11 – Closing of the Schueberfouer
The great party goes out with a bang, literally. All attractions will be half-price until 8 pm and the the fair will close with fireworks at 10pm on Pont Grande-Duchesse Charlotte.
September 4: Grande Braderie
The ‘Braderie’ tradition, which started in 1929, goes hand in hand with the Schueberfouer. It is the most important commercial event of the year. The city becomes a pedestrian zone with stands, drinks & food being offered; not only are the shops selling off their summer stock, but they also give reductions on new collections. Young and old are drawn to bargain-hunt every year and many end their day with a turn at the Schueberfouer.
September 8-10 : Fête du Raisin et du Vin
Wine takes centre-stage this month as Grevenmacher will host its 73rd annual Fête du Raisin et du Vin on the weekend of the September 8-10. The wine festival is the largest in Luxembourg and each year draws up to 20,000 people.
The festival begins on Friday with the crowning of the Reine du Vin, the Wine Festival Queen. As the Wine Queen she will be responsible for representing Luxembourg wines at cultural events both nationally and internationally. On Saturday, the streets of Grevenmacher will become a pedestrian zone offering food, wine, crémant, music and other entertainment. Festivities conclude this day with spectacular fireworks set off above the Moselle River. The celebrations continue on Sunday, with performances, entertainment and more wine. In the afternoon many organisations will participate in the annual cortège. The fun will continue until until late at night.
Free bus service is usually provided between Luxembourg Ville and Grevenmacher, you can find the detailed program on their website.
September 10-11: Butschebuerger Buergfest
If you’re not a great wine fan, explore this festival instead; it’s an ideal chance to do some time-travel to the medieval ages in the south of Luxembourg, in Burange near Dudelange. The festival is a very authentic one with some 100 craftsmen and merchants presenting their wares as well as fun and entertainment for the whole family, from bird shows to swords fights, acrobats and a knight tournament. Details of the program can be found on www.buergfest.lu.
September 9-10: LOA 2023 Season Closing
On Friday and Saturday, expect a massive crowd of people ready to dance and rave. Remaining tickets are limited but be sure to check out their website to see what last minute tickets you can snag! LOA will take place at Place de l’Europe in Kirchberg, Luxembourg City.
