Homecoming of livestock in StefansdorfOur editorial team always tries to provide detailed and accurate information, but it is possible that events undergo changes that we are unable to update in real time. Exact details on dates, times and programmes can be obtained directly from the organiser.
Like in many other South Tyrolean villages, also in the peaceful place Stefansdorf, nearby the popular ski and hiking area Kronplatz, the traditional homecoming of livestock takes place. The farmers accompany their livestock from the alpine pastures back to the valley when autumn begins.
To express their thanks that everything had gone well throughout the whole summer, the village community celebrates a big party. From 12 noon you can enjoy typical South Tyrolean dishes and drinks on the fairground.
The real homecoming of livestock starts at 2 pm. Traditional decorated cows, calves, goats and horses cross the village. Interesting is not only the handmade decoration of the animals, but also the traditional costumes of the villagers.
The event offers countless regional delicacies, amusing music and good atmosphere. Those who are interested in history and tradition of the South Tyrolean farmers can watch the demonstration of old trade and housework practices.
Visit the homecoming of livestock in Stefansdorf and enjoy the unique hospitality and the love to traditions of the friendly village community!
