"Johannisnacht" is one of the yearly event highlights in the calendar. It is celebrated in remembrance of Johannes Gutenberg, the famous inventor of the printing press with moveable type. Four days long there is a great atmosphere in the centre of Mainz. Free entry on all days!

The traditionel printers' baptism is practiced since the 16th century. The merry printers' baptism, the so called "Gautschen", is a traditional highlight of the Johannisnacht (24th of June, 2017). Since the 16th century assistants have been submerged in a barrel filled with water symbolising a release of the years of apprenticeship as well as the removal of lead dust. This tradition is still celebrated on Johannisnacht Saturday, in historical costumes on stage at Liebfrauenplatz. Today the apprentices are usually digital media designers who have just finished their apprenticeship.

A firedrake and a dancing sceleton as well as Caribbean steeldrum sounds and medieval flair with "Donner Trummel": At 50th Johannisnacht street artists stroll through the alleys of Mainz. The Belgian combo "Les Contes d'Asphalt" impresses with its fairy-tale puppet theatre - a premiere in Mainz. "Sunshine Coconuts" create Caribbean flair with their steeldrums. Besides the audience is transferred back to medieval times by "Donner Trummel" .
