Garden Party 2016


On Wednesday 6 July 2016, the European Parliamentary Association celebrated its annual garden party. About 400 people participated in this evening, which was organised under the auspices of the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament and member of our association, opened the event with a short speech and welcomed the numerous MEPs. Different European and Alsatian sponsors contributed to the successfull organisation of the event. These were: Spirits Europe, the Brasserie Meteor, the Distillerie Massenez, the Caterer “Chez Soi” as well as seven other restaurants of Strasbourg, the vineyard Weingut Schloss Ortenberg, the brewery “Csiki Sör” as well as the vineyards Nachbil and Balla Geza from Transylvania. The band PapyrosN created a great atmosphere with different European styles of traditional music, while the German amusement park EuropaPark animated the evening with two magicians and two fire jugglers.
