There are also many wine festivals in Baden-Wuerttemberg, and also several wine routes, and for 4.50 euros you can purchase from any bookstore Feste ferien Baden-Wuerttemberg 2010 to find the more than 5,500 special events in this German state, and it also lists other large special events in nearby areas such as September"s Sausage Market in Bad Duerckheim, the world's largest wine festival.

I actually live in the area and am quite aware of the larger fests that are offered. I am looking for suggestions for this weekend because some of the fests are smaller and moreso for locals (e.g. from the town where the winefest is being held = private gatherings) and not for those of us from Mannheim, Heidelberg, etc.

I would like to go to a fest similar to the Gimeldingen fest, but not like the Edenkoben fest.
