On this day, the alpine transhumance is evoked in which animals, after the summer in the alpine pastures, return to the village for the winter period. The festively dressed animals parade along the streets of the town centre with the inahbitants of Livigno dressed 'in the old style' to revive the emotions of rural life in days of the past.



The farmers are those who quietly and discreetly work hard throughout the summer. Alpenfest is the day in which the ancient rite of Alpine transhumance is relived, in which the cattle, after spending the summer in the alpine pastures, return to the village for the winter. This edition of Alpenfest will be special, a real celebration: after the traditional parade, lunch will be prepared by the Livigno Cooks and Pastry Chefs Association, who will prepare tasty recipes inspired by the book "Leina da Saor". Following this, performances by local groups, representations of ancient crafts and ballroom dancing will enliven the day. The evening will end in style with a DJ set by Paolo Noise!
