We are delighted to announce the 7th edition of the Tête de Moine Festival, which will take place on 4 and 5 May 2024 in Bellelay. Under the theme "Our tradition" and sponsored by Chef Franck Giovannini, the event will include an international cheese platter competition and the best Tête de Moine AOP competition.

The Interprofession of Sbrinz AOP will be the guest of honor. Together, we will dive into "Our tradition" with a particular focus on Sbrinz AOP, originating from central Switzerland, precious raw milk cheese, just like the Tête de Moine AOP.

The program includes a cheese and regional product market, exhibitions, musical entertainment, culinary delights, agricultural cultural goods and many other activities on the historic site of the Tête de Moine. The public will also be able to evaluate the Tête de Moine from different producers in the region on Saturday morning, with the awarding of the public prize during the giant fondue under the marquee the same evening.

Farm animals will be exhibited in collaboration with the agricultural chambers of the Jura and the Bernese Jura, and guided tours of the Tête de Moine Museum will be organized throughout the weekend. Visitors will also be able to follow the traditional manufacture of the Tête de Moine over a wood fire, interact with a master cheesemaker and taste local products in about fifty chalets.

Guided tours of the abbey and the village of Bellelay are also planned. The objective is to attract several thousand visitors to Bellelay, the birthplace of the Tête de Moine AOP, and to introduce them to this generous cheese, its sector and its magnificent region.

On Sunday morning, the brunch prepared by the apprentices of the Rurale Interjurassienne Foundation will also be a good opportunity to regain strength.

Pre-registration for the fondue evening on Saturday 4 May and the brunch on Sunday morning 5 May 2024 are chargeable. For more information, please consult the website.
