After a pandemic-related break, Mode Heim Handwerk returns as a special on four days. In the three exhibition halls, you can not only shop extensively, but also laugh, try out and marvel at you.


Audience magnet fashion show stage


The fashion shows are back on stage: Exhibitors present current collections for the autumn-winter season. Students of the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, the Hochschule Trier and the Mediadesign Hochschule MD.H Düsseldorf also present their fashion creations. They show, among other things, how design can be combined with sustainable and responsible production.


Curtain up and stage clear!


The children’s theater “Magic Flakes” in Christmastown brings two plays to the stage: On the one hand, “Waiting for the Christ Child” shortens the waiting time for the upcoming festival with puppetry and Christmas carols to sing along. On the other hand, “Trudi, the goose from the Gertrudenhof” tells her dream of the spotlight. Nearby, the Christmas café invites you to linger with a hot cup of coffee and a delicious piece of cake.




Homemade things are very popular. Craft fans get their money’s worth in the field of kreativ.essen. Exhibitors produce candles made of beeswax, reusable cosmetic pads made of crochet yarn and tasteful Advent wreaths made of silk flowers in workshops. Pearls become individual jewelry, fabrics become chic clothes and concrete putty a sculpture. At the adjoining handicraft market, one or the other gift for the upcoming Christmas can already be purchased.


Furniture individually designed by journeymen can be admired under the motto “The Good Form” at the Tischler NRW stand. If you want to lend a hand yourself, you can make your own cutting board made of beech wood here under expert guidance. The trade association asks for a donation of five euros, which will benefit those affected by this year’s flood disaster.


School nature – knowledge grows here!


The school Nature of Grugapark Essen gives insights into the topics of biodiversity, flowers and pollination through various information islands. How are fruits and vegetables made? What role do insects play in this? Understanding theoretical knowledge in practice is the motto here. Trade fair guests can go on a discovery tour in a small forest and actively contribute by crafting sperm balls to transforming the home environment into an insect-insect flowering flowering island.


How does it actually live in Africa?


Under this title, the association Kezebidi – Aktion Plus for Togo informs young and old inquisitive people about life on the African continent. What is it like to grow up without running water? What does a school visit to Togo look like? What has changed Corona? These and other questions will be investigated in 15-minute information discussions.


Sporty in Essen


Everything revolves around sport and exercise on the action area of the Essener Sportbund. Clubs of Essener Sport and neighboring cities present their offer true to the motto “SPORTy in Essen, SPORTy in the region” and invite you to participate. In addition, the Bambini kickers are fighting for the coveted trade fair cups at the weekend.


Where is the journey going?


The holiday dreams powered by Reise + Camping take visitors to various places on earth. In the holiday cinema, videos, photos and lectures make you want to go on the holidays and give inspiration for the next travel booking.
