Älplerchilbi – a harvest thanksgiving festival with customs, traditions and conviviality. An event that's celebrated annually in Nidwalden.
They are most prevalent in the two half-cantons Obwalden and Nidwalden, where they are known as älplerchilbis, or alpine fairs. Here, the unmistakably local flavour of the fairs shines through in the sketches performed on the main square, which play on local events or poke fun at well-known local people. Many alpine and herdsmen's fairs in Central Switzerland are run by clubs and associations, which have arisen from fellowships that can chart centuries of history.
