63rd Traditional Cows’ Ball :

63rd Traditional Cows’ Ball

Virtual event

The biggest holiday in Bohinj!

Cows’ Ball is a traditional event that was in the 1950s organised as a festive event for local people, who welcomed herdsmen and they jointly celebrated the end of the tourist and grazing season. The event is 63 years old. 
This year, the Tourist Association would proudly organize it for the 63rd time!
63. The cow ball will be different this year than we are used to, but we promise that it will be no less interesting, as the performance will take place in a virtual form.
Although this year we will be left without the Cow Ball, alpine farmers and cheesemakers have not stopped anything in their work. As every year, this year they are very present in the mountains and valleys. The cows know nothing of anything strange and are diligently giving milk. Somehow it seems to us that this year’s cheese products will be especially delicious.
We are preparing interesting video and image content, the program is in work!
