What's on in Chamonix September 2019

It's been a busy summer here in Chamonix with plenty of great events, concerts, festivals and markets. The good news is that there's still plenty more to come. 

Here is a quick rundown of our favourite things to see and do in the Chamonix Valley this September.

Tour du Mont Blanc Vintage Car Rally

The Tour du Mont Blanc Vintage Car Rally is back again this year on September 8th. Head to Place Mont Blanc, in the centre of Chamonix, where you'll find the vintage and classic cars gathered before they set off on their 400km tour through three countries – France (Haute Savoie), Switzerland (Valais) and Italy (Aosta Valley) – to return to Chamonix. Only cars over 25 years old are allowed to take part.

Braderie

As summer slowly drifts away, shops in Chamonix bring their end-of-season sales out on the streets at the extremely popular "Braderie". With discounts reaching often half price or less, this is the time to purchase those trail running shoes or the windstopper that you couldn't afford before.

Hit the Shops

Wine Tasting Gourmet Lunch

Every month, the Michelin-starred Albert 1er Restaurant organises a wine-tasting lunch with wines from a selected vineyard in France or the world. In September, it's the turn of the Domaine Bzikot and the Domaine Laurent Roumier in Burgundy. There is a morning tasting session followed by a gastronomic lunch created by chef Damien Leveau to match perfectly with the wines of the domaines, which this month features seasonal mushrooms, sole and poached Savoyard pears.

Evergreen Endurance Triathlon

Four different triathlons to choose from starting at the 28km off-road triathlon and up to the gruelling 228km XXL triathlon, the Evergreen Endurance is only for the strongest. Participants in the longest of these races will swim 2km in Montriond Lake, near Morzine, before tackling a 190km cycle ride through some of the most legendary Alpine cols to reach the Chamonix Valley, where they'll run a mountain marathon. The overall height gain is more than 7850m... dizzying!

La Folie Douce Summer Closing Party

La Folie Douce say farewell to a very successful first summer season in Chamonix with a Dia de los Muertos themed party on September 21st. Mexican food, piñatas, a Daiquiri bar and incredible performers will welcome you from 12:00 to 22:00. There will also be workshops to learn how to mix the perfect mojito, create flower crowns and play the maracas.

Trail des Aiguilles Rouges

The Trail des Aiguilles Rouge is a prestigious trail running race in the Chamonix valley that gives athletes some of the most iconic and fantastic views of Mont Blanc. Starting from the town of Chamonix, the route climbs high up into the Aiguille Rouges nature reserve, taking a different path each year. Not for the faint-hearted (or the unprepared), the race covers a distance of 54km and a total ascent of over 4000 metres. Top runners can complete this race in around 6.5 hours but, for many, it will mean a long day of running lasting between 10 and 13 hours. If you don't want to take part, then supporting the event and watching along the way can be just as fun.
