Cultural in Deidesheim

In medieval times, the nearby village of Lambrecht paid Deidesheim one goat as rent for pasture rights in Deidesheim's forest, a tradition that has evolved into this lively 'goat festival'. Each year, a goat is paraded around town before being auctioned; there are also wine tastings and special menus at restaurants.
