Calendamarz parade in Maloja 2025

In Bregaglia Valley, Calendamarz is the day when one says goodbye to the long and severe winter and welcomes the upcoming spring.

Many wear a bell (the bigger, the better) to ring loudly and drive away the evil spirits of winter. Some also blow horns or beat drums. The children wander through the village waving flags and ringing their bells to frighten away the harsh winter season. The parade stops in front of houses and in the village squares, where cheerful songs are sung to welcome the arrival of spring. In return, they receive donations and gifts, mostly sweets. Chestnuts and cream are served at lunchtime. In return, they receive donations and gifts, mostly sweets.
