From the 21st to the 23rd of July 2017, don't miss the Alphorn festival !
More than a simple gathering of players, the Valais Drink Pure Festival equally offers an official competition, a big traditional procession, a country dance, demonstrations of Swiss wrestling, performances by folklore groups and ensemble pieces of music.
This event is a true popular festival concentrated on Swiss folklore. It takes place between the Plaine des Ecluses in the heart of the resort (Friday-Saturday) and the exceptional site of the Lac noir de Tracouet (Sunday).
The official competition unites more than 100 players divided into several categories. A blinded jury of experts listens to and evaluates the pieces played. This procedure is unique in Switzerland up to now.
Nearly 12,000 spectators travel to Nendaz each year to take part in this original and traditional festival! All the entertainments and productions are free (except for the ride up to Tracouet in the telecabine on Sunday).
