Shepherd Festival

Sat, 12. September 2015 - Sun, 13. September 2015


The awards ceremony for the best-looking Valais black nose sheep and for the Shepherd of the Year elected the day before, will take place during the traditional Shepherd Festival at Schweigmatten/Furi. That day offers plenty of opportunities to marvel at the attractive and affectionately coiffed sheep. A varied festival program for young and old is guaranteed. And Wolli will, of course, attend the festivities personally, because he also celebrates his birthday on this day.
