Dive into a gourmet ambiance at the Cheese Festival!

For an even more immersive experience, come and witness the live cheese-making, where you can discover the secrets of this ancestral tradition. Several artisans will complete the market with the typical savoir-faire of our region.

This festival continues an ancient tradition, where cheesemakers emptied their stocks before the herds ascended to the mountain pastures. Lovers of fine products are assured a convivial moment, whether with friends or family.

Local craftsmanship demonstration – Discover the making of Gruyère AOP, wooden cream spoons, or lace making.

Do not miss the magical moment of the cheese coming out at the Chalet de la Confrérie scheduled around 11:00 and 15:00, an experience not to be missed for all gourmets!

Musical entertainment – Alphorn players and the folk orchestra 'Les Trèna-tsôthè' will animate the city between 12:00 and 18:00.

Complete this culinary excursion by exploring the fascinating museums of the region, for a day full of discoveries and delights. Join us for a memorable celebration of our region's gastronomic richness at the Cheese Festival!
