The post war era finally found the motivation of the inhabitants of Mindelheim quite changed. Even though the children stayed in the center of attention during the festivities in 1950, 1953, 1956, 1967, 1970 and 1973, the idea of “living history” including all ages, levels and aspects of society gained in credibility and popularity. Thus, once again in its long history of continuity and change, in 1976 the Festival altered its face to become an event integrating youth and adults, inhabitants and visitors alike. Thus, every three years Mindelheim returns to mediaeval times in order to commemorate Georg von Frundsberg by pageants, festive concerts, theatres, historical diversions as well as merriment with music and dancing, a historical peasants’ market, medieval craftsmen at work, performances of plays written by Hans Sachs and medieval camp live. Since 1977, the festival is organised by the non-profit society Frundsberg Festring Mindelheim e.V.
