History / Tradition
The Mainfest was originally a festival for fishermen and boatmen and was supposedly derived from the consecration of the Dreikönigskirche (Church of the Three Kings) on 23 July 1340. The purpose of this festival was to give thanks and pay homage to "Their river and its bounties".
