A street festival took place in the two settlements of Bändli and Tiefenbrunnen at the end of September. On 22 September 2018, the residents of the Tiefenbrunnen settlement were invited to build garden furniture from palettes, enjoy coffee and cake in the temporary street café or cut their own bouquets from the flower pots provided by the city. A section of the Wildbachstrasse was temporarily closed for this purpose. In the Grünau district, the street closure of 29 September 2018 was used to hold a street soccer tournament and to sit together for sausage and raclette.
