Event31st International Meeting of Chimney Sweeps

from 31 August 2012 till 03 September 2012

Santa Maria Maggiore - Vigezzo Valley

31st International Meeting of Chimney Sweeps

Every year Santa Maria Maggiore, a beautiful village in the Vigezzo Valley, hosts more than 1200 chimney sweeps, coming from all over the world in order to celebrate and remember a particular ancient job: the chimney sweep.

The International Meeting of Chimney Sweeps, now at its 31st edition, will be from 31st August to 3rd September 2012: four days of celebration including dances, music and parades.

The gathering, as always, is organised by the National Chimney Sweep Association with the aid of the Vigezzo Valley Consortium of Mountain Municipalities and the Verbano Cusio Ossola Province.
