The festively decorated cows are expected to arrive in the village around 1:00pm. To entertain the crowds that line up the streets, there will be live music and folklore dancing. Food and drink is provided for on a farmer’s market.
Some two weeks later, on September 23, 2023, the Sölden Sheep Festival is celebrated at the heart of the village with early morning entertainment and live music, starting at 09:00am. Highlighted by the running of sturdy locally-bred woolies charging down the village streets, this event also features a parade, an exhibition (at 10:00am), live music and dance. The most beautiful sheep will be awarded prizes around 1:00pm.
