The Ingelheim Harbour Festival can take place again this year! On the last weekend in July, the festival on the Jungaue, located on the banks of the Rhine in Ingelheim, invites you to linger by the Rhine, listen to the music on the unplugged stage or something more swinging on the open-air stage with various live bands. The festival is organised by Ingelheimer Kultur und Marketing GmbH (IKuM) and will take place over three event days, from 23 to 25 July. Guests can expect an attractive programme with live music, artists' market and children's entertainment.
The summer fun begins on Friday, 23 July. The festival site opens at 4 pm. The programme officially begins at 5:30 p.m. with the opening by Father Rhine (Andreas Bockius, radio presenter and Mainz05 stadium announcer) at the Leinpfad, who, together with Ingelheim's Red Wine Queen Ann-Kathrin Harth, Heidesheim's Harvest Queen Michelle Walther, Mayor and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of IKuM Eveline Breyer, Matthias Becker, Managing Director of IKuM and presenter Mechthild Weitzel, will open the Harbour Festival 2021 with a round of talks. Following the opening, the IKuM invites the guests present to a small drink at the Ingelheim Vinothek stand.
Artists and craftspeople from Ingelheim, the Hunsrück and the Rhine-Main region will present their works and handmade individual pieces on Saturday and Sunday at the artists' market under the willows on the banks of the Rhine. The offer ranges from individual pieces of jewellery and glass design to utility ceramics and floristry to self-sewn favourite pieces and upcycled products - just to name a few. Products with a local connection such as woodwork made from driftwood from the Rhine and delicacies from regional production form a highlight of the market.
At 8 pm, the band "Live Style" starts on the main stage with the perfect mix of pop, rock, disco and Schlager. Dance Cats" will play danceable music on the unplugged stage at the same time.
On Saturday, 24 July, the fairground and artists' market open their doors at 2 pm. From 2 to 5 p.m., children can have their favourite motifs embellished with face painting. The best of 40 years of music history - in their own interpretation - will be performed by the band "Tschau Johnny" on the main stage at 8 pm. At the same time, the band "Groove Jungle" will play dance music on the unplugged stage.
The festival site and artists' market will also open on Sunday, 25 July from 11 am. There will also be face painting for children from 11 am to 3 pm. "Teddy & The Slags" will play country, rock n' roll and rockabilly covers on the unplugged stage at 5 pm. Musically, the band "Flying Horses" will play the best of the 80s on the main stage at 6pm.
