    Schutzenfest German Festival

    Schutzenfest annual German festival is presented by the South Australian German Association.

    The Schützenfest, or 'shooting festival', has long been celebrated in German towns.

    In Adelaide the South Australian German Association has hosted the Schützenfest, the largest folk festival in the Southern Hemisphere, on an annual basis since 1964. The first Schüt*zen*fest was celebrated in Adelaide in 1865. Competitive shooting is one of the main features of the Schützenfest because good marks*man*ship was essential in the defence of medieval towns.
