Events this September in Stuttgart

And with the snap of a finger, summer is gone and fall has arrived. Welcome to September 2018! 😀 But don’t worry, we will have some more nice and sunny days this month, I promise. And we actually need them as more fun open air festivals and events await us this September in Stuttgart!

  • What would fall be without pumpkins, right?! A great annual festival around the pumpkin is Kürbisausstellung (pumpkin festival) in Ludwigsburg! It is on throughout September, until November 4.

  • The vhs stuttgart introduces a whole new English-speaking program for Expats and the international community in Stuttgart, starting this September! Some fun courses this month include Lunchtime Fascia Training, starting on September 27, Zumba, starting on September 18 and Diamonds in the Sky – Stars, Planets and All That on September 28.
  • It seems like everything is about wine this September in Stuttgart! The main event that lovers of a good glass of wine mustn’t miss is Stuttgarter Weindorf. It is still going on until September 9.
  • The fun festival Stuttgart am Meer (Stuttgart at the sea) is also still going on until September 9 with deck chairs right in front of the museum Stadtpalais, a pool for kids, live entertainment and more.
  • A highlight for fans of the local soccer club VfB Stuttgart: Our boys will play against 1. FC Bayern München On September 1.
  • Have you ever been at Österreichischer Platz in Stuttgart? Probably not – or you haven’t noticed as this “square” is located underneath the bridge Paulinenbrücke, close to Gerber shopping center. It used to be a parking space but since August a group of citizens has taken over and is about to turn this square into a fun meeting point! On September 4 and 5 a huge festival for kids will take place, on September 5 you can participate in a picnic (bring your own snacks and drinks!) and on September 17 you can play Bingo!
  • And some more fun for wine lovers: At Uhlbacher Herbst, the oldest wine festival in Stuttgart, you can enjoy yummy wine and live music between September 6 and 9.

  • “We will rock you” – at Planetarium Stuttgart with the fulldome music show Queen – Heaven on September 7, 14, 21 and 28.
  • Feuerbacher Kirbe is the second biggest fun fair in Stuttgart, after Stuttgarter Wasen. You can visit it between September 7 and 10.
  • If you follow my blog for a while already you know that I am a huge fan of Eric Gauthier, the head of the Gauthier Dance / Dance Company Theaterhaus and initiator of Colours Dance Festival. But he’s not only a dancer and choreographer, he sings, too. And quite well actually. You can find out for yourselves and listen to Eric Gauthier and Band at BIX Jazzclub on September 8. To find out more about this concert, check out the post of my last visit in 2015.
  • If you prefer to sing yourself, join Stuttgart singt! on September 8 at Schlossplatz, next to Kunstmuseum to sing folk and pop songs!
  • If you think you have to travel to Scotland to enjoy Highlandgames you might be delighted to hear that we have them in Stuttgart-Weilimdorf on September 8 and 9, too.
  • More music: Bergkonzert (concert on the mountain) with newcomer bands at Travertinpark on September 9!
  • If you need a beer before you start to sing, you should visit the brewery festival organized by Dinkelacker on September 9. This brewery is super tradition for Stuttgart and even though I don’t drink beer (what a German I am, right ;-P) I feel connected to this brewery because my grandfather used to work for them 🙂

  • But if neither concerts nor breweries are you thing, how about rubber ducks!?! That’s what I thought 🙂 So you can visit the Rubber Duck Race at Höhenfreibad Killesberg on September 9.
  • Hans-im-Glück-Brunen is a meeting point for party people anyway but between September 13 and 15 the square and the bars around the pretty fountain will be even more crowded because of the Brunnenfest with live DJ acts!
  • Another fun street festival is Feuerseefest! This year it is going on between September 13 and 16 around the lake and next to the beautiful church. Next to live music and food stands you’ll find stands from local artists and designers.
  • On September 15 you can visit street festival Stars of the South (Sterne des Südens) at Lehenviertel and shop for sweet little somethings.
  • Run for a good cause at Stuttgarter Lebenslauf (Life Run Stuttgart) and support the fight against HIV on September 16.

    If you like Latin Jazz you should visit the first Latin Jazz Festival of Stuttgart at Kiste between September 21 and 24.

  • Get to know all the cute little shops and galleries in Stuttgart-West at Schätze des Westens (treasures of the west) on September 22.
  • Cannstatter Wasen, our version of the Oktoberfest, will turn 200 years old this year! We celebrate this anniversary with a special pre-Wasen event: a historical fun fair! Between September 26 and October 3 you can enjoy old school attractions like jugglers, fakirs and artists at Schlossplatz.
  • And of course the “real” Wasen starts this September in Stuttgart, too! 🙂 From September 28 until October 14 all the fun rides and beer tents that we love so much can be found at Cannstatter Wasen.

    Hello Mel! I love your blog 🙂 I’m very new here in Stuttgart (less than 3 months) and it’s so cool to find a fellow blogger like you who helps expats! I hope we see each other and collaborate on something. I write about travel, money, and life and for my travel category, I recently wrote a post on the free things I did in my first two months here in Stuttgart. Here is my blog’s link:
