La Démontagnée Gourmande

22nd October 2022

"La Démontagnée Gourmande" in Bourg Saint Maurice is an opportunity for everyone to get together during the descent from the mountain pastures. 

Meet up with friends or family at 10.30 am for the big parade of herds of Tarine and Abundance cows, goats, sheep and other animals. 

These herds will parade through the town of Bourg Saint Maurice accompanied by the sound of bells and by numerous musical groups: the Alphorns, the Cliqueraine de Queige, the Harmonie de Bourg Saint Maurice "Echo du Saint Bernard" and don't miss the Italian flag throwers who have come especially for the occasion!

To close this day, the young farmers propose their traditional Demontagnée Ball from 7pm on the bus station car park.

On the station car park, stands selling gastronomic products and entertainment will enliven the town all day to celebrate the end of the mountain pasture season. 

Friendly meal on the spot.

The "Grand concours du meilleur fourrage", which will elect the best hay in the valley.
After having undergone numerous tests, the jury will examine each hay sample and will give its final verdict during the "Demontagnée" in Bourg Saint Maurice.
