Once a year there is a special festival that alternately takes place in one of Gröden’s villages and that allows you to learn more about habits and customs in Gröden.
This year, the traditional festival takes place in St. Christina. The local music band performs traditional and modern music from the region. Visitors can see typical folk dances and enjoy regional delicacies. The festival highlight will be the costume parade.
