62ND COWS BALL IN BOHINJ

Unique traditional event, celebrating the end of grazing and tourist summer season.

Program for year 2019 is in preparation.

Cows rule the mountains and pastures in Bohinj. Every autumn we prepare a ceremony for them, when, decorated with flowers, they return to the valley after several months grazing in the mountains. This is a traditional event in Bohinj which has taken place for more than 60 years.

The Cows’ Ball is a legendary annual traditional event in Bohinj and a unique celebration of the cows’ return from the pastures, when together with herdsmen and herdswomen they return to the valley. For this occasion, the cows are decorated with flowers. They are accompanied by herdsmen and herdswomen, who bring herds of cattle and carry “basenga” on their shoulders – everything they need to make cheese and other things they need for living on pastures.

This tradition has been celebrated for more than 60 years. In the past, farmers, as a habit, welcomed the herdsmen and because this occasion at the end of summer swiftly became known to all people of Bohinj, it soon turned into an event or celebration for the entire valley
