"La Tavolata" – St. Moritz invites you to the Banquet Table
On the weekend of the 27th and 28th July, 2013, the "Tavolata" will be held in the heart of St. Moritz. On a 400 metre long table through the pedestrian zone, the star chefs of St. Moritz's hotels will prepare meals and drinks for the enjoyment of locals and guests. On the eve of the Tavolata, the "Tavolata Jam" will feature regional, national and international acts on 5 stages in unusual venues to create a Festive atmosphere for guests. The event is organized by the St. Moritz Village Association.
Within a very short time, "La Tavolata" has blossomed to become a popular and special event of the Summer. For two days, the Village Association of St. Moritz provides a opportunity in the middle of the pedestrian zone for spontaneous and unexpected encounters between the locals and guests of St. Moritz.
The "Tavolata" starts on Sunday morning at 10.00am with a special Jazz concert with guest "Popa Chubby" on the Hauser stage. From 11.00am, the feast on the 400 metre long table begins. The Kitchen Chefs of the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, Kulm Hotel, Hotel Schweizerhof and the Hotel Salastrains ask that you come to the table so you may be spoilt by a selection of the finest foods. The confectioners of the Confectioneries Hauser and Hanselmann will provide the sweet delicacies. Guests at the banquet will be entertained by concerts in the Plaza Mauritius and on the stage at the Cafe Hauser. Sunday's music program will, like the concerts of the bands on the eve before, be supplemented by Folk Music formations and Folk Dancing Groups.
