An international street art festival of the special kind takes place in the spa town Merano every year in June.
Every year, a particular event for families and those who love street arts takes place in the spa town of Merano. It is called Asfaltart, and has become a platform for national and international artists, ideal for presenting themselves and their skills to a large audience. Jugglers, fire-eaters, acrobats, clowns, mono-cyclists, comics and dancers - the programme is varied and there is something for every taste, music and entertainment included.
For one weekend, the town centre and the Piazza Terme square transform into a stage. And if you would like to present your skills to the public, there is also an open-stage in the Off-Space. This hilarious festival is organised by the association "Kunstverein Kallmünz" in cooperation with the Merano Old Town Association, Mairania 857, the Pratiko Theatre and Animativa, a circus group.
