Little Festival in the Great Garden

Under new artistic direction and with the motto „Water“: from 10 to 28 July, visitors to the Herrenhausen Gardens can experience the new concept of Hanover's cultural classic.

Die "Fontijnbar" ist eines der gastronomischen Highlights auf dem Kleinen Fest 2024

Note: The Little Festival in the Great Garden is actually sold out, but there are still 300 tickets available at the box office on each evening of the event. A maximum of 2 tickets will be issued per person. Expect longer queues.

The heart of the festival will be the Great Fountain. There will be plenty of space for shared experiences and gastronomy. The finale will also take place at the fountain in 2024.

The number of stages will remain roughly the same as before, but there will be 50-minute shows at some locations, with partners such as the GOP and Desimo. In future, the promenade will be on the wide, central axis between the palace and the Great Fountain.

In addition to the fixed genres of comedy, clown, circus, street theatre, puppetry, sideshows and walk acts, contemporary dance, urban dance, performance, theatre, art and interactive installations will also receive more attention.
