Traditions and folklore Guides Festival 2022 Chamonix-Mont-Blanc


On Wednesday 31 July 2024
Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (74400)

La Compagnie's anniversary is an opportunity to organize a Fête des Guides, bringing together guides and attendants of all generations to pay a memorable tribute to those who have made history, and to the guides of tomorrow. The first Fête des Guides took place on August 15, 1924, with the aim of raising funds for the Caisse de Secours. More than a century later, that hasn't changed. But above all, through togetherness, solidarity, friendship and the spirit of the roped party. All this is made possible by our partners, local residents and visitors. While the heart of the association was born in Chamonix, the body has always been spread across the valley.
