The Terentner farmers’ animals move back down to their home farms after summer grazing in the alpine pastures.
During the legendary Terner Livestock Drive, the farmers drive their animals all together from the Alpine pasture to warm stables in the home farms. For over 100 cows, calves and sheep, this marks the end of their summer stay up in the high pastures. The animals are decorated with bells, ornate garlands and fresh flowers, and driven down to the valley by herdsmen. Whip-cracking displays, ‘Schuhplattler’ dancing and music turn the procession into a lively event. At 10 a.m., the festivities begin in Terenten with entertainment and tasty treats and dishes from the local rural cuisine. At around 2 p.m., to finish it all off, the cattle drive moves through the village centre of Terenten.
Event start time 10 a.m.- animals arrive at 2 p.m.
