For the past 23 years, the Pannekaukenfest has been organized solely on a civic and voluntary basis. In 2006, the Hanseverein took over the direction, after a loose round of enthusiasts had laid the foundation. Today it is the largest volunteer event in Schwerte.
As a non-profit event, the proceeds of the festival always flow back into the organization of the next festival.
The Pannekaukenfest is made without public subsidies: Many people with fun in the matter, contributions of the stand operators and the indispensable support of the sponsors make this festival possible.
