The traditional grand parade
We are happy to inform you that the Merano Grape Festival will take place from October 14 to 15, 2023 with free admission. The parade starts on October 15, 2023 at 2:00 pm at the Vinschgauer Tor.
The traditional grand parade is the undisputed highlight of the Merano Grape Festival. The institutions and clubs involved already begin days before to decorate their floats with much dedication, passion and attention to detail. Most of the floats stand for traditions that are celebrated with particular pride at the Merano Grape Festival. These "classics" are joined each year new interesting companions.
Some floats have long since become famous beyond South Tyrol: for example, the so-called "Kundschafter" of the farmer's youth Lagundo with its 300 kilogram giant grape or the Marling float "Apfelkrone", which participated for the first time in 1949. Particularly symbolic wagons are also the floats of the "Schützen" with the title "South Tyrol - The cradle of Tyrol" and that with the coat of arms of Merano.

Route of the Grand Parade: Porta Venosta, via delle Corse, corso Libertà superiore, piazza della Rena, Passeggiata Lungo Passirio, ponte Teatro, piazza Terme.
