Bamberg zaubert is a multi-day international street and variety festival in Bamberg.
It was founded in 1999 by the Magic Friends of Bamberg, the local chapter of the Magic Circle of Germany and the then city manager. Since then, Bamberg zaubert has taken place annually on the third weekend in July in Bamberg's city centre. With over 200,000 visitors according to the organisers, Bamberg zaubert is one of the largest admission-free street and cabaret festivals in Germany. All visitors, regardless of their financial circumstances, have the opportunity to experience the diversity of street art and variety shows.
The highlight of the festival days are the Magic Nights, when highlights from magic, artistry and fire art are performed on the main stage on Maximiliansplatz in Bamberg. In the early afternoon of the festival Saturday, the focus is on promoting young artists with the young talent show.
