Jazz zum Dritten

At the Frankfurt Römerberg, a sizable festival with a jazz-centric theme honors the Day of German Reunification. Jazz was a natural choice as the celebration’s theme because Frankfurt is a jazz mecca when the concept for it first emerged in 2002.

The inaugural Reunification Day carnival had already received widespread acclaim, and Frankfurters honored the event with a surprisingly high turnout. The notion has taken off, and it demonstrates how deeply jazz is ingrained in the city on the Main.

Every year on October 3 at the Römerberg, Frankfurters and their guests are cordially welcomed to commemorate the Day of German Reunification together. Live jazz will be performed, and entrance is free. The event’s location and platform are jazz in all its richness, and the city’s jazz traditions provide witness to Frankfurt’s internationalism and tolerance of all cultures.

Because the Free Imperial City’s fiscal year, up until 1729, extended from May 1 to April 30, Whitsun was typically when tradespeople had their grand festive processions and various artisan fairs. This implied that the beginning of the new administrative year also signaled the beginning of the guild leaders’ term in office, which therefore provided justification for lengthy celebrations and frivolity.
