Barioz Festival

The Fête du Barioz (patois for barrier) is the traditional festival
of Pralognan-la-Vanoise’s oldest district! A not-to-be-missed
organised by the Pralognan-la-Vanoise Festival Committee.

Highlights: tradition and conviviality!
– Parade through the streets of Pralognan-la-Vanoise / History
The parade evokes the life of yesteryear to the rhythm of the seasons. A succession of decorated floats evoke life in the mountain pastures, the birth of mountaineering and winter tourism. There’s something for everyone!
– Activities around traditions, place du Barioz / Folklore
Dances, music and folk groups (Les Frontières, Cocktail des montagne, L’Écho des Alpes, Les Citharins, Philippe Fournier), demonstrations of ancestral know-how (cheese making), craft market, refreshment bar, barbecue and sale of bugnes on place.
– Farmers’ soup / Conviviality
An invitation to taste the farmers’ soup, which has been simmering since the morning. First come, first served! An evening of dancing and music.
