However, Zermatt also has much more to offer. Every year in mid-August the Folklore Festival takes place and in 2013 it will be the 45th issue. 1‘200 participants joint the festival in Zermatt to celebrate Swiss traditional music and customs.
On certain evenings in Zermatt and Täsch special folkloric evening are taking place with performances from different local associations.
