Grape Harvest Festival

Every year, the last weekend of September is the occasion to celebrate the beginning of the grape harvest in the Neuchâtel region.

For three days, the city center is free of traffic, allowing revelers to celebrate in a unique atmosphere of light, music and laughter. The big night procession of the Guggenmusik takes place on Friday evening, but the costumed groups can be found throughout the festival. The children's procession is traditionally held on Saturday afternoon. The flower parade on Sunday afternoon attracts a large audience. Rhythmically driven by brass bands, enlivened by the humorous touch of some groups in costumes, this procession continues the tradition of the parade of the harvest floats, loaded with the working tools of the winegrower, decorated and decorated with flowers, at the end of the harvest.
