Absinthe Festivals

There are 2 main absinthe festivals taking place every year. One is the Absinthiades in October, in Pontarlier, where the best absinthes are awarded. The other one is the Fête de l'Absinthe in June, in Boveresse. There, absinthe lovers from all over the world come together to drink absinthe and to visit the distilleries of the Val-de-Travers.
