Anniversary year of the Basel Autumn Fair
The Basel Autumn Fair, the oldest and largest fun fair in Switzerland, is celebrating its 550th anniversary in 2020 and 2021. During the anniversary year and the lead-up to the start of the 2021 Autumn Fair, fair-related activities will be featured on various squares in Basel’s city centre. Information pillars about the history and traditions of the Basel Autumn Fair will be set up and are just some of the activities promising to thrill all of your senses. The 11th of July 2021 marks the 550th anniversary of the grant of the imperial privilege of holding fairs, which is why a festive weekend for everyone in Basel will be celebrated from 9 to 11 July 2021.
