The Wewelsburg International Youth Festival takes place every second year at Wewelsburg castle, with each of the local folk dance groups from Ahden, Delbrück, Geseke, Henglarn, Hosen-Mantinghausen, Niederntudorf, Siddinghausen, Thüle, Westenholz and Wewelsburg as well as the Danzdeel Salzkotten taking part, each with a partner group from abroad.
500 international participants mean that the Youth Festival week rates as one of the largest of this type of event in Germany.
The 31. International Youth Festival Week Wewelsburg will take place from 30.05.-06.06.2015!
The members of the visiting groups from abroad will be accommodated in local families.
The big Gala Evening in the Paderhalle in Paderborn is the highlight of every Festival Week, with each local group and their guests from abroad performing.
