Saint Wenceslas Vintage Festival
Wine has belonged to Kadaň since medieval times; the vineyard right was granted to the city by Emperor Charles IV. The vineyards completely disappeared from Kadaň in the modern history, but the tradition was renewed in 1997, and since 1999 the vintage festival is held in the Franciscan Monastery gardens every Saturday closest to Saint Wenceslas day. It celebrates the grapevine harvest in the local vineyard with the size of almost half of a hectare, having assumed the mountain opening tradition from Moravia (secured against magpies about one month before the harvest), as well as music and dance traditions. You can taste not only the local wine, cider or young wine. The event is visited by two to four thousand visitors every year.
