Cultural, Traditions and folklore, Entertainment/recreation Mountain Festival Val-Cenis


On Sunday 21 July 2024 from 10:30:00 in 18:00:00
Val-Cenis (73480)

The festival was originally created by the Val Cenis High Mountain Guides to showcase the mountains through their profession. The Tourist Office and the Association "Les Ainés Ruraux" (Rural Elders) then got involved to bring back to life the agricultural work of yesteryear.
Mountain professionals (guides and escorts) returned to the festival (stands and demonstrations) to give it a new meaning: to help people discover the mountains (sporting activities / mountain rescue / agricultural work / traditions...).
