The Tresterer dance of Pinzgau is a special, regional manifestation of the Schönperchtenlaufen, a procession of masks. On the 5th of January the night before Epiphany this circular dance consisting of jumping and stomping is performed at dusk at farms surrounding the provincial capital of Salzburg. A visit by the Tresterer dancers and musicians comes unannounced and is understood as an honour and as a good omen for the upcoming year. It is reciprocated by a small donation. The leader of the group introduces the meaning of the tradition by dancing a typical move. The dancers are partly accompanied by musicians.
