From 20 to 25 February 2020, the streets in the village are full of the so called "Schuffener" with their colourful and funny costumes. The name "Schuffener" comes from "Schuffa", the South Tyrolean dialect word for a traditional farmer’s meal made of milk. 

For one week everything in the village is about carnival parties, jokes, amusement and delicious traditional sweets. Furthermore you can spend a wonderful day on the slopes of the ski areas Carezza or Obereggen between one carnival event and another!
