The Oswalds-Gassen-Fest, which has long since become a tradition, will attract visitors once again: the charming old town destination will become the festive focal point of Zug on Saturday, 21 May.
Families are invited to come and play and have fun on the traffic-free Oswalds-Gasse and Burgbachplatz from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, 21 May, according to an announcement from the city of Zug. There is a wide range of offerings: in the Technik-Mobil, young and old can learn all sorts of exciting things from the world of technology, while the open workshop shows how a boat is built of wood, and there are offers for playful discovery and creative co-creation in the "SO20 – House for Learning".
Books at reasonable prices can be found at the book flea market of the Zug Library and at the bookstore Susanne Giger. Words become works of art in "Oswald's Eleven", where Zug author Beats Wild reads in the Bauhütte, and clown Greta runs through dream and reality. There are also children's stories in different languages. The church of St. Oswald and the Museum Burg Zug will present valuables from the church treasure, and the Stadtarchiv Zug offers an analogue and digital tour of the alleyways of the town.

Feasting, enjoying music and dance
Apart from this wide range of activities, there are plenty of possibilities for catering of all kinds, as well as musical entertainment. In addition to concerts of the music school Zug on the square, a children's disco will be held in the Burgbachkeller. If you like it quieter, you will get your money's worth with the sound and movement meditation in the music studio. And finally, everyone can play in the so-called Gassen-Jam.
The detailed programme of the Oswalds-Gassen-Fest on 21 May can be viewed on the website of the Zug Library (www.bibliothekzug.ch). In case of bad weather, the event will takes place in a reduced version. As parking is limited, it is recommended to travel by public transport.
