Traditional highlight of the autumn in Salzburg is the harvest festival (‘Bauernherbst’).

The different regions in the country are presenting themselves and their products. The harvest time is celebrated and tradition and customs are revived.

In Grödig harvest time is celebrated too, for example with the ‘Erntedankfest’. During this festivity on September 18, a harvest crown made out of grain is carried in a procession through the village to the church.

After a mass, the people sit and eat together. The main idea of this festivity as for the whole harvest festival as well, is to be thankful for the rich harvest.
