Category: Feasts/Festival/Folklore Area: In Val di Fassa from to hrs: 10:30 - Resort: Pozza di Fassa - SŤn Jan di Fassa Place: Val San NicolÚ Two days in Val San NicolÚ to celebrate Ladin culture and traditions with excellent gastronomy, touring concerts, folk dancing, theatrical performances and children's games
On Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August, Val San Nicolò, one of the most beautiful valleys in Fassa, will once again host the "Festa ta Mont", a two-day event dedicated to the most authentic traditions, made up of customs, stories and legends. Here, amidst the old huts, once used as seasonal dwellings and as barns during the alpine pasture period, you can get to know a cross-section of Ladin culture and taste delicious local cuisine to the accompaniment of folk music.
The theme of the 15th edition is community, i.e. the rediscovery of the values that united the Ladin people in times of difficulty, but also during festivals. Values that led to the establishment of the first voluntary associations for the purpose of assistance and solidarity, but also of groups moved by a common passion and the joy of being together. Along the itinerary of the festival, it will be possible to get to know, thanks to photographic supports, the various organisations operating in the area.
The "Festa ta Mont" is a demonstration of the liveliness of the social fabric, thanks to over two hundred volunteers who, with their availability and cooperation, contribute to the success of the event in an atmosphere of friendship and joy.
