Dirndl Traditional Fair
The core of the traditional fair is comprised by the stalls, as it had been usual in
earlier times in village fairs, for your enjoyment and entertainment. You will be strolling
from stall to stall and trying the delicacies of our region. The entertainment stands, like
disc or rose shooting stands are for relaxation and amusement - before, during and after the meals.
It is only natural that at a Dirndl Traditional Fair the female actors are clad in Dirndl dresses
- at least where the Dirndls of the Steinschaler Doerfl are concerned! (A word play on the word
Dirndl, meaning the Cornelian cherries, the traditional dresses but also girls or women in German.)
The Village Square is also the ideal setting for organizing at least one part of the Dirndl
Traditional Fair also in the winter. At that time of the year, our Dirndl Hot Punch is always
greatly appreciated. The warmer part of the event can then be held in the Village Pub.
The opening of the traditional village fair can be combined with the place name sign
of your own or with the salt and bread ceremony. The further procedures of the day fair
can be tailored to your wishes, from the more formal through the rustic to the typically
rural, many program items being ideally held at the alpine Olympics stations.
Village ambience and regional cuisine
The number of the stalls can be varied according to the number of participants or
your wishes: appetizer stall, salad stall, pear cider stall, wine stall, etc. You can
have a relevant stall for the main courses and for the desserts or we can serve them
for you in one of our restaurant areas. Should you desire, we are of course glad to
provide drinks service or waiters in addition.
We are glad to involve your guests at some stalls if you wish. Make your own
“snowball cookies” or crullers at the dessert stall. Or decorate your gingerbread
heart yourself under the professional guidance of “Herzerl” (Little Hearts) Mizzi,
a world record holder in gingerbread decorating.
Another tip are the regional specialties cooked in the huge pan, like the original
Dirndl Valley style “lumberjack style” meat pan or the fresh Kaiserschmarrn
(a traditional pancake dish) served with homemade compote.
Stalls for entertainment and music, if you like it, contribute to a maximally relaxing
