Villach Carnival

A must for every carnival fan and anyone who wants to become one! In January and February, the Drau town is affectionately known as the “stronghold of fools” by its inhabitants. Why?

Villacher Kirchtag

The Kirchtag in Villach is the largest folk festival in Carinthia and attracts thousands of visitors from all over Austria and beyond every year.


Every Wednesday and Friday in the summer months, a unique spectacle of light, water and music awaits you on the Drau.

Street art festival

Every year on two days in July, Villach becomes a Mecca for jugglers. This annual rendezvous is not only a festival for the artists, but also for the numerous visitors.
