Farmers’ Festival Weggis

We went to watch the Farmers’ Festival in Weggis. We attended the mass first, then went to watch the “Folklore Show”, and finally, watch the parade. Farmers’ Festival is also popularly known as “Sennenchilbi”.

The Farmers’ Association of Weggis was founded 320 years ago and is the oldest association in the village. It has managed to preserve its customs and traditions over the past 300 years.

The last “Sennenchilbi” in Weggis was 5 years ago, and the next “Sennenchilbi” will be in 5 years from now, in 2011.
