Bagnes Capitale de la Raclette 2017 - Cheese Fest

12/09/2017. bagnesraclette.ch

Cheese fest aka Bagnes Capitale de la Raclette 23rd & 24th Septembre 2017.


Since 2004 the Bagnes has celebrated local products, especially cheese - Bagnes Capitale de la Raclette 


The village of Le Châble (just down the road from Verbier) hosts these two unique days of activities organised by the association Bagnes Agritourisme. 

The aim of the cheese fest "Bagnes Capitale de la Raclette" event is to offer visitors a chance to taste the cheeses and producers of the Bagnes valley, as well as the entire Entremont district, whether they are made in the dairies or on mountain pastures.


Each year, a Valais wine-growing commune and a producer of PDO cheese outside the canton are also invited to take part in the celebration and to present their products.


On Sundays, the spectator can admire the procession of queens (horned and milked) from different alpine pastures, accompanied by the folk dance group of Bagnes as well as different floats and orchestras.
