Two large and very popular festivals shape the course of the year on the historical Helkenhof:
The Ginseng festival under the motto "Ginseng, Arts & Culinary Delights" traditionally takes place on Ascension (11 am - 6 pm). Meeting friends, chatting, discovering new things - there's something for everyone. At 10 am an open-air church service starts. At 11 am the market bustle with peppy background music and a diversified children's program begins: children's circus, bouncy castle, tree circus & Co. delight young visitors. Take part at this extraordinary festival!
During the entire "Ascension weekend", from Thursday until Sunday, a bygone era awakes at FloraFarm: A medieval market, together with the associated knight erranty, jugglers, sutlers and many more can be found here - delve into this historical era!
The Bockhorner Christmas market, "Ginseng, Arts & Curiosities" is the motto (Sat 12-7 pm, Sun 11 am - 6 pm) welcomes visitors in a Christmassy ambiance - always on the third weekend of Advent. Saturdays from 7 pm on, we invite you to the big Christmas party in the marquee!
During these days the historical farm site turns into a small craft village. In idyllic surroundings, visitors can observe the emergence of beautiful, partly also unusual artworks at a variety of different stands, and purchase their favorite items for home. In addition, big and small curiosities, an entertainment program for children and adults, live music as well as a variety of culinary delights offer a lot of pleasure and special wellbeing to our guests.
