Kockeldiko

"Activités-nature" will welcome families of all ages to the grand Kockeldiko festival in Kockelscheuer, featuring a wide range of workshops, stands and games on the theme of the forest, the garden, water, the farm, bees, and sustainable development.

Come take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage, cook over an open fire, create your own masterpieces using natural materials and have fun while discovering new things about the natural world!

Kockeldiko is a green event. Comprehensive measures have been taken to protect the environment: we will serve organic, locally sourced, fair-trade drinks and snacks; recycling containers will be available available on site; and no single-serve containers will be used. The decorations and stands are also built using natural and reusable materials.

For some of the activities, you will get to take home a small souvenir. Don't forget to bring along a bag to carry them. Cloth bags will be available on site if needed.

Toilets and water stations available on-site.
