On October 7th and 8th, 2023, the market square in Werder (Havel) will once again be transformed into a stage for local producers. In Brandenburg there is an impressive variety of small and medium-sized farms as well as food artisans who produce handcrafted and ecologically high-quality food.
In addition to the regional street food stands and a producers' market, visitors can expect a festival with hands-on workshops and a diverse stage program. The program includes music, cabaret and informative contributions on topics such as regional nutrition, climate change, global nutrition and cultural diversity in food.
The FestEssen creates a connection between producers and consumers and makes the rich diversity of agricultural products on our fields and plates tangible for everyone. The aim is to arouse enthusiasm for the nutritional transition and to show what contribution the region can make to it.
