"Fiocca" (whipped cream) Festival

Avise

In Baulin
  • Sunday 30 June 2019
Opening time and fees Programme

This festival, whose first edition dates back to 1972, is held in the village of Baulin (1700m) at the entrance to Valgrisenche. The Fiocca (cream) is vigorously whipped by hand, using “fouets” (willow whips), inside the “Borna”, which is one of the deep caverns providing respiration to the great glacier hidden in the heart of the mountain.

A lunch is served in the open air with many traditional dishes: “polenta e carbonada” (meat cooked in wine), “Soça” (stewed vegetables) and grilled meat. After an afternoon of fun and games, it is now time for the Fiocca, which is offered to all those taking part by the Pro Loco Association.
