Every year on the second weekend of August, Zermatt is overrun by Swiss Foklore groups from all over the country. The highlight of the Folklore Festival is the main parade through town with 50 different folklore groups with more than 1200 dancers, yoddlers and musicians. After the parade the folklore groups perform at the fairgrounds and at the church square. Food and drinks as well as entertainment for the children is provided. Spend an unforgettable day at the foot of the Matterhorn with music, dance and lots of good fun!
