The "Bénichon" is a centuries-old, traditional Fribourg celebration.

At the beginning, it was a religious celebration whereby thanks were given to the gods for what had been harvested during the year. Over the years the ceremony's religious side disappeared and the gastronomic and festive side remained. For six hours straight or more, you eat and drink and, if you manage to get on your feet again, dance! And the whole thing according to local tradition.
