The Valais Drink Pure Festival International Alphorn Festival in Nendaz is a gathering of players, an official competition, a large traditional parade, concerts, performances by folklore groups, two country dances and ensemble pieces (with more than 150 players). In short: a true traditional festival dedicated to folklore.
