Details about the event


The Festival, now a tradition for the city of Frankfurt, is held annually since 2001 on the first Sunday in September in the Frankfurt town Hall, the Römer. The Newcomers Festival is an informative fair exclusively designed for the professional expats to help overcome transitional phase and cultural differences and have a smooth start in their new home.

As a family-oriented exhibition fair of essential services and organizations for the expatriate community, Newcomers Festival hosts every year round 60 exhibitors from different industries such as relocation companies, international schools, health insurances, banking and finance, international schools, driving and language schools, non-profit organizations, clubs, museums, theaters, tourism & many more.

The Newcomers Festival has grown over the years and is successfully attracting from year to year more visitors. Last year the Festival was attended by more than 5,000 people from 30 countries. Besides the exhibition of valuable and important information concerning their integration and living opportunities in Frankfurt, visitors are welcomed to enjoy our entertainment program, the international musical dance groups and food & drinks reflecting the local gastronomy.

The safety of our visitors and exhibitors is our top priority this year. We have created a profound and extensive hygiene-concept in co-operation with Stadt Frankfurt. The concept has been reviewed and approved by Gesundheitsamt Frankfurt.

All visitors (and exhibitors) have to pre-register for the Festival online. We are capturing contact data for Gesundheitsamt Frankfurt.

--> Only registered guests may enter the festival. Tickets will be scanned at the door entry

--> There is a maximum of 250 visitors at a time for the festival. We are offering extended opening hours this year.

--> In general we have more space in Römer Frankfurt, an additional floor will be opened. We have ensured lots of space to move around, between the stalls and are operating a one-way system this year to reduce any risk of infection.

--> Visitors and exhibitors will have to wear masks on the premises of the Festival
