The 20 year anniversary, July 24 - 30, 2017.

Dear Festival friends,

for the past nineteen years, The World Bodypainting Festival has been an integral part of the cultural and touristic events calendar in Carinthia. For six of those years the festival has hosted thousands of participants and visitors to Pörtschach at Lake Woerthersee.
Due to the increasing burden of the residents and their complaints, as well as the high costs of infrastructure we are no longer able to continue at the current location.
2017 will signal the 20th Anniversary of The World Bodypainting Festival. We truly feel it deserves to be a very special one and for many weeks we have been playing with the notion that perhaps the 2017 festival would not take place.
Recently an alternative location has offered itself. After much economic and infrastructural consideration, we believe we have found our new World Bodypainting Festival HOME.
The WB-Production is happy to announce the city of Klagenfurt and the capital of Carinthia to be the new location of The World Bodypainting Festival. Klagenfurt am Woerthersee is an international established event location that will allow the festival to flourish and develop for many years.
We are particularly interested in networking with all the great art and cultural initiatives the city has to offer. We are also sure that everyone will be happy with the centrally located airport and main train station. In addition Klagenfurt offers artists and visitors alike a city vibe filled with restaurants, cafes and all types of shopping including the lakeside. The World Bodypainting Festival has always been and will continue to be a melting pot of art and entertainment. The new venue is embeded in the stunning ambience of the state theatre, the art house, different galleries and the house of architecture. 

We look forward to a sensational 20th year in Klagenfurt, Carinthia in the south of Austria.
