In the Free State of Bavaria, preserving local customs, that means the art of cultivating local traditions, has been highly respected in Bavarian folk music and local costume preservation efforts. Primarily, the preservation of local traditions lies within the responsibilities of local communities, administrative districts and regional authorities.

The Bavarian Government provides for public funding of programmes and organisations actively preserving local traditions, whose impact goes beyond their own regions.
