This theatre takes its name from the former pig market. The origins of the Theater am Saumarkt and the Feldkirch Kulturkreis association date back to 1972. The Saumarkt sees itself as an important mediator of regional culture, which repeatedly embraces current cultural and artistic trends.

Its nine current programme groups offer a wide variety of events, focussing on the areas of literature, philosophy, children’s culture, film and concerts.

The Saumarkt considers itself to be a cooperation partner for Vorarlberg’s cultural sector and cultural institutions, and aims to provide participative forms of cultural work for those Vorarlberg residents interested in culture.
