Shepherd’s Festival

For ewe and ewe and ewe! Zermatt will once again celebrate its traditional Shepherd’s Festival on the weekend of September 6th – 8th 2019. There will be festival food and drink stands, an open-air church service, childrens’ games and a four legged beauty contest where the most beautiful black nose sheep in the whole village will be crowned „Miss Zermatt".
