Legend has it  that a market woman drove the devil out of Esslingen by giving him an onion instead of an apple. This is why the Onion Festival is celebrated every year in August on Esslingen’s Market square.  This year the festival is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The eight Onion Festival hosts entertain their guests in rustic arbors with attractive culinary highlights. In addition to numerous live musical performances, the supporting program also features traditional onion balancing, a day for traditional costumes, the crowning of the Onion Festival Queen, and much more.
