Gries town festival

Gries town festival: Holy Mass, typical gastronomy and music

ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.

According to the studies, it seems that the Gries feast has been celebrated since August, 5 in 1787 (and maybe even before), when the small church of "Our Lady of the Snow" became the destination for pligrims, replacing the sanctuary of Pietralba (BZ) closed to the devoted by the Emperor Giuseppe II. Even after the reopening of Pietralba, the celebration of August, 5 have been still much felt (according to the historical moments) and celebrated, even today. The feast begins at 10.00 a.m. with the open-air Mass in the square Piaz Gries, followed by an aperitif with tasting of the typical desserts called "grostoi" for everybody. The feast goes on in loc. Ciuch, where it is possible to taste dishes of the Ladin tradition. In the afternoon local folk groups and bands will perform.
