To eat. It is a party with tradition to eatbut now it’s almost over …

Because what the future of the RÜ-Fest will look like is uncertain. The festival is an event of absolute tradition and more to eat-Popular Rüttenscheid.

Essen: the Rü-Fest will also be canceled in 2022

There were guests not only from other parts of Essen, but also from neighboring cities.

The fact is: this year there will certainly be no Rü-Fest, as Rolf Krane from the Rüttenscheid interest group (IGR) confirmed to DER WESTEN: “There are many reasons for this. It has something to do with Corona, but also with human resources and framework conditions. Many things come together there ”.

Essen: The popular event took place for the last time in 2019

The Rü Festival has existed since 1988. It last took place in the summer before Corona, which is in 2019. After the event had to be canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the corona, the traditional festival will not take place in June this year either.

Therefore, there is a lack of human resources, the people who can help organize such a big festival. Furthermore, if you look at the current incidences, Corona is far from over.


This is the city to eat:

  • it dates back to the Frauenstift Essen, founded before 850
  • 582,760 inhabitants, nine districts and 50 districts, the fourth largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia
  • since 1958 the seat of the newly formed diocese of Essen
  • Landmarks among others: Zeche Zollverein, Villa Hügel, Grugapark Essen
  • was European Capital of Culture in 2010 and European Green Capital in 2017
  • The mayor is Thomas Kufen (CDU)


Essen: no planning security for the RÜ festival

“The crown numbers aren’t that big yet. And I don’t know if it’s up to date to have such a big festival. We also have no planning security. Nobody can tell us what the June numbers are and what regulations are in place at that time, “explains Krane.

After all, a festival like this takes a long time to plan. But also for the next few years, the Rü-Fest looks rather gloomy given the human resources.

Essen: Some hope for all the friends of the Rü Festival

After all, Krane gives some hope: “They always say that one should never say never. Of course, we are very sorry that the RÜ festival is not taking place because it already has an important function and it was fun for many people. From this point of view, things can also change “.
