Free of charge.

This evening focuses on the savoyard tradition with the folklore band "La Pastourelle du Val d'Arly" who is expecting you in a pastoral setting! After the concert ensues a great bonfire. Snack bar available on site.

In a pastoral setting at the edge of Tamié valley resound “youstes” and traditional airs from the Val d’Arly, the valley connecting Ugine to Megève, between the Beaufortain and the Aravis. La Pastourelle du Val d’Arly is a folklore band which has been keeping the popular traditions and dances alive for 60 years, just as they were practised in mountain villages. Their authentic costumes depict the life our ancestors led. They take you dancing to the sound of the accordion and violin if you feel like it.

A great bonfire lights up the valley at nightfall, to end the evening on a high note. This bonfire tradition is usually related to the St Jean and the arrival of summer; but this summer bonfire has been inviting visitors and local people to discover and celebrate the traditions for a few years now.

Snacks and drinks are available thanks to “les Z’Éclatés”.
