Katie the KÄT Camel


The mascot for the Annaberg KÄT

The tradition of the KÄT camel in Annaberg-Buchholz is derived from the fact that over 100 years ago, great shows featuring exotic animals such as camels brought a special flair to Annaberg KÄT. In later years the term came to refer to KÄT fans who would visit the festival grounds every day.
This gave rise to the familiar phrase: "You are a real KÄT camel".

A life-sized KÄT camel has been present at the fair since May 24, 2014 and can be seen at KÄT every day. It was given the name "Katie" at the grand opening on June 21, 2014.

For family day on June 21th starting at 5 pm all mascots from Saxony, Germany, and Europe are invited to meet up with the KÄT CAMEL at a big mascot meetup at KÄT. These guests from far and wide will be introduced in the festival hall starting at 5 pm. Afterwards the traditional KÄT conga line with the mascots included will go on tour through the festival grounds starting at 5:30 pm. Mascots interested in participating should contact Mr. Till Schwabe, tel. 01717940273 or send e-mail to:
