The Heilbronner Volksfest is the largest festival in Heilbronn and one of the largest in Baden-Württemberg .

The folk festival takes place on the Heilbronner Theresienwiese , starts every year on the last Friday in July and ends on the second Monday in August. It looks back on a tradition dating back to 1926, when an annual entertainment week took place for the first time , which was discontinued after 1929, but was resumed as the Heilbronner Volksfest from 1933 . After the interruption by the Second World War , the festival has been held annually since 1947.

Catering in the festival tent, which is currently designed for around 3000 people, has been provided by the gastro service provider Göckelesmaier since 1956 , who as general contractor handles numerous public festivals, including in Tübingen and Ulm . For a long time, beer from the Heilbronn brand Cluss was served. From 2001 to 2008 a special Unterländer folk festival beer from the Palmbräu brand was served . The contract was terminated due to the unsafe delivery caused by Palmbräu's insolvency. The folk festival beer has been supplied by Haller Löwenbräu since 2009 .

Until 2015 the festival was called Unterländer Volksfest. Heilbronn Marketing GmbH then decided to adapt the name of the festival to the marketing of the Heilbronn area as Heilbronn Land instead of Unterland . The Heilbronner Volksfest is about half the size of the Stuttgart Spring Festival and is visited by over 200,000 guests every year, in 2009 it was 235,000, in previous years up to 300,000.
