St Gervais Agriculture Fair

 

St Gervais Agriculture Fair

Coming up  …. SUNDAY 18th October …. St Gervais Agricultural Fair

Not to be missed… 

This is an outstanding showcase of rural Alpine life, right in the heart of St Gervais.

It’s just on this one day of the year, the roads in the village centre are closed to traffic, and open to cows!

A showcase of machinery, livestock breeding, forestry, tradition and culture, as well as plenty of music, a bar and even a champagne tent!

The centre of the village is a true spectacle, with the roads lined with cows, which are then paraded and judged, with the winners being awarded fabulous floral head displays, which hook over their horns for their final parade.

In addition to the livestock, the locals are out in force, many dressing in traditional Alpine agricultural costume.

This is truly a fun day out for all, with lots to see.

A day not to be missed in the St Gervais ‘social calendar’.
