A colorful afternoon with children's games from the past and more modern activities awaits our young residents and guests at the Ahrenshoop Children's Festival.

The traditional Ahrenshoop Children's Festival, on the meadow next to the playground in the Althagen district, is a great way to celebrate Children's Day.
The youngest guests at the festival can expect traditional children's games from the past, combined with more modern activities.
If you feel like it, you can take a horse-drawn carriage ride to the children's festival.

As every year, the girls and boys between the ages of 6 and 12 will open their festival with a specially rehearsed ribbon dance and the accompanying song "Turner ziehen", which has been performed at the children's festival since 1961. This year, for the first time, there will be a "veteran ribbon dance", in which former ribbon dance children will also perform this dance from their childhood days.
Other highlights of the afternoon will be the typical regional competitions such as pigeon shooting and bicycle barrel throwing, where girls and boys can put their skills to the test.
The fire department comrades provide lots of fun with target spraying and a tour of the fire engine.

The guests' physical well-being is also catered for. The festival for the whole family is not only fun for children, but also for adults.

Admission is free.

Historical facts about the Ahrenshoop children's festival:
The oldest available historical photo shows that the children's festival has been celebrated in Althagen since at least 1905. In 1946, the still famous teacher Erne Wehnert moved to Althagen and revived this tradition after the war. From 1948, a children's festival was celebrated again for the then still independent villages of Althagen and Niehagen, and from 1949 also again in Ahrenshoop. With the merger of the districts of Ahrenshoop, Althagen and Niehagen, the children's festival has been celebrated together since 1950. Even today, the youngest visitors to the festival enjoy the traditional children's games from back then, combined with more modern activities.
