Rhythm 'n' Booths

You’ll have the world at your fingertips this summer at this year’s Tollwood Summer Festival, June 17–July 11. This eclectic celebration in the Olympic Park once again tempts all the senses. Enjoy musical performances by the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, Village People, Nena, Patti Labelle, Vonda Shepard and many more. Experience culinary treats from across the globe, get a sense of Caribbean flair with Reggae and Salsa in the Karibik-Zelt, take in the culture of the Near East in the Garten der Fliegenden Wolken, indulge in traditional delicacies accompanied by a dance group in the Indian Garden or visit the Shisha-Bar, where the atmosphere is that of Arabian Nights. Check out the performances taking place in the Theater-Insel, where illusionists, pantomimes, acrobats and loads of captivating talent are putting on shows. And, of course, there’s great shopping for all tastes. Tollwood events and shopping are open Mon.–Fri. 2 pm–11:30 pm and on weekends 11 am–11:30 pm, but eating and drinking continue until 1 am.
