Thursday | Scheffauer Village Evening
In Scheffau every Thursday at 7.30 pm is the Scheffauer village evening. A cosy get-together directly below the church in the very heart of the village with magnificent views of the Wilder Kaiser. Stalls with local culinary specialities, and a parade and open-air concert from the Scheffau-Brass Band. Entrance is free of charge.
Friday | Traditional Arts and Crafts Market
Every summer around 100 craftsmen and artists display their work on the town square. These specialised Tirolean handcrafts range from the nearly extinct art of “Pylon” (giant wooden post) driving, wooden pipe drilling, and hand weaving & spinning to others that have stood the test of time or are regaining their popularity. Kassettl (native costume) making, wood carving and tatting are just a few examples. The local farmers are only too willing to show off their home grown products and home cooked specialities such as freshly baked farmer’s bread, fresh butter, “Kasspatzeln” (traditional noodles with fried onions and grated cheese) and lots more. They still use methods of yesteryear to prepare their farm products. With attractions for children (incl. a kids gold mine) and free admission the “Kunstmarkt” is a holiday hit.
