International Hot Air Balloon Festival
©Fabrice Wagner

Between living traditions and local celebrations

The international Hot-Air Balloon Festival, coming down from the L’Etivaz mountain pastures, terroir celebrations, children’s shows, concerts and sports competitions: the diversified events agenda of Pays-d’Enhaut has something for all tastes.

The year always starts colourful and with fanfare music in Pays-d’Enhaut. The famous International Hot-Air Balloon Festival turns the Swiss capital of hot-air balloons into a meeting place for aerostiers from the four corners of the globe. Winter remains the season of sports competitions, whereas the summer festival “Children’s Land” turns Pays-d’Enhaut into a kingdom for small children. In autumn, the region focuses on music with the festival “Bois qui chante” and on traditions during the famous désalpe in L’Etivaz.
