The Valais features exciting elite events from all areas of culture and sport. Everyone will find something here – as a passive observer or an active participant. Every event is the best in their class. Sports fans, cultural aficionados, music lovers and other connoisseurs will all get their money’s worth. Events are perfectly organised and staged in a wonderful atmosphere, surrounded by breathtaking scenery. A visit to one of the Valais’ elite events is always worth it.
With 300 stands, 40'000 visitors and 10 tons of chestnuts eaten in two days, the “Fête de la Châtaigne” has become, in only a few years, one of the most popular events of the autumn in Valais. It takes place every year, the week-end following the end of the famous Foire du Valais in nearby Martigny.
