Midsummer Fest

Description

Evolène

The 15 Aug 2021

Every 15 August, for many generations, the inhabitants of the village have celebrated Midsummer by putting on the clothes of their ancestors and repeating their gestures in order to share with you this love of tradition.

After the mass, the Hérensard guides offer a demonstration of helicopter rescue on the cliffs above the village.

You can also meet the typical farm animals of our region at the entrance of the village.

Brass bands, folklore groups, fife and drum groups and choirs enliven the central street.

You can also admire some splendid old cars.

At 2.30 p.m., a large procession retracing the life of the past and highlighting ancestral know-how and farm animals crosses the village.

The invited groups will then bring the heart of this village, one of the most beautiful in Switzerland, to life throughout the day with their songs, music and dances.
