2nd Swiss Wrestling Festival in Ticino Schwingen
The traditional Swiss wrestling competition where fights take place on a sawdust ring - crosses the Alps for the 2st Swiss Wrestling Festival ever held in Ticino, the southernmost Italian speaking Canton of Switzerland.
The open-air event will be hosted in Gudo - a charming village located between Locarno and Bellinzona - on June 23-25, 2017, with the goal to entertain local public and visitors with a Swiss tradition that can be traced back to the 13th century.
But in Gudo there will be much more than “Swiss wrestling” fights on the plate: a farmer’s market with genuine local products like Alpine cheese and handicraft, an exhibition of wooden sculptures carved with an electric saw and a display of vintage farm tractors. On top of that, a selection of culinary regional specialties that will satisfy all palates.The official Swiss wrestling contest will take place on Sunday, June 25.
