The coming home of the cattle for winter in Fulpmes, Stubai Valley is a reason for great celebration. While the cattle is driven down to the valley, stalls are being set up in the streets, selling fresh farm produce.
Join the farmers and village people to celebrate the safe homecoming of the cows at this original folk festival, featuring live music, culinary delights and cows that are lavishly decked out in garlands of flowers and ribbons. The 2019 festival begins in the morning: By 10:30am, farmers and herdsmen drive the cattle down to the valley from Schlickeralm and Fronebenalm Alpine Pastures. At 11:00am, the farmers’ market at the music pavilion opens, selling refreshments and all sorts of Tirolean specialty dishes. The “Ski Instructors from Stubai Valley” band is out in force to welcome the lovingly decorated cows that are expected to arrive in the village by noon.
The same day, Neustift celebrated the honecoming of cows, too with the herds arriving in the village by 12:30pm.
