62. Narzissenfest

The Daffodil Festival will be relaunched and put on a new footing as of 2022

In the future, the festival Sunday will be celebrated at a central venue. This will allow guests to organize their stay more flexibly.

The traditional Narzissenfest in the Ausseerland-Salzkammergut region will enter 2022 with new momentum.

"The festival Sunday will take place from next year in a three-year rhythm alternately in Altaussee, Bad Aussee and Grundlsee," explains Rudolf Grill, chairman of the Narzissen Festival Association.

New beginning in Altaussee

City and boat parade celebrate premiere at a venue in Altaussee. On the Sunday of the festival, the artistic daffodil figures will be placed on the streets and in front of the inns in the center of town. In the early morning, the festival program begins with magicians from the Magic Ring Austria, music and culinary delights. A jury inspects and judges the figures. In the future there will be an overall evaluation, the separate award of the figures on the lake will be omitted. Around noon, the figures are loaded onto the lake and move from the Kahlseneck past the Seehotel, the Madlmaier and the Seevilla a small loop back to the community park. The announcement of the judging results to the public will then take place from a central position. After the boat parade, guests can enjoy a leisurely end to the day.

A festival for young and old

The 62nd Daffodil Festival will take place from May 26 to 29, 2022, and will ensure bright eyes for young and old with a colorful program. Thus, there will again be beloved events such as the May Dance of the children and the Fashion Show - the special presentation of local crafts. Consideration is being given to organizing the Fashion Show on catwalks on each floor of the Kur- & Congresshaus Bad Aussee, so that more guests can enjoy the presentation. The classic car meeting, the brass band star march and the daffodil night in Bad Aussee are also fixed points.

At a kick-off event on May 26, 2022, the new highnesses will be introduced and crowned. In addition there is music of most diverse genres.

Young girls can now apply to become Narzissen Highnesses, the casting will take place on May 7, 2022 at the Seevilla in Altaussee.
