Programme map of the Veillà shuttle service

It has normally been held the Sunday during the period 15-20 January, to avoid overlapping with the one in Aosta, held 30 and 31 January. The events surrounding the Fair normally start Friday, with the Veillà, then on Saturday the town’s streets are enhanced by a charming torchlight procession, after there is a Mass for the artisans and an evening with choirs, while the exhibition of the items created by around 500 artisans takes place on Sunday.
Once a fair for selling farm tools built during the winter, over time it has transformed into a showcase for Valle d’Aosta’s traditional crafts products. You can still find rakes, baskets, spoons and ladles, casks, sabots and household items, but today there is mainly the expertise of full-fledged artists to admire, who specialise in sculptures, bas reliefs, inlay on wood or serpentine as well as articles in copper and wrought iron, laces, fabrics in hemp or wool, slippers, etc.
