DESALPE 2018: ST-CERGUE
Saturday 29 September 2018

desalpesstcergue

"Désalpe" is the best-known of all traditional mountain festivities. After more than four months of grazing in alpine pastures, cows make their way down to the plain.

Thundering bells will be hanging from the cow's necks and brightly colored flowers on their heads. Parade, traditional music and selling of local produce among other things.

A great feast that marks the end of the Alpine season. During the event, the passage of numerous herds decorated with flowers show the great passion of the farmers for their livestock. Cows, goats, and pigs pass through the village throughout the day to the sound of bells and Alphorns. Various typical animations are proposed and craftsmen of the region present their works at the market.
