The 32nd Rheinland-Pfalz State Fair will take place June 26 to 28 in Ramstein-Miesenbach. Cities and union communities of Rheinland-Pfalz, charity organizations, as well as military forces,will participate in the fair to demonstrate who they are and what they have to offer.
Entertaining programs with live music, dance performances, presentations and displays will be offered in 25 event areas in the center of town. A parade with about 2,500 participants will take place June 28.
“Ramstein-Miesenbach is one of the smaller organizing towns of the state fair, but hospitality is tradition here,” said Malu Dreyer, minister president of Rheinland-Pfalz. “The friendship and neighborhood with the U.S. military forces and their families is a key aspect of the event.”
The minister president also mentioned that the relationship between Germans and Americans has been growing for decades and forms their everyday life. Members of the U.S. Air Force will host a reception and take part in the event.
“The state fair will be the highlight of Ramstein’s 800th anniversary,” said Klaus Layes, mayor of Ramstein-Miesenbach. “If the weather is nice, we expect about 150,000 visitors.”
Additional trains and buses will be available to transport visitors. For more information on the state fair, visit www.rlp-tag.de or www.ramstein-2015.de.
