Saturday Market on 7/31?

Hi Everyone,

We have a few days in Bern are eager to experience a big Market Saturday. Does anyone know if it will be changed or canceled because apparently it's a holiday weekend?

Thank you!

the market in Bern happens every Saturday unless it is a public holiday. August 1 is, 31 July is not...

Oh thank you! I am so looking forward to it! Is it worth going Saturday AND Tuesday, or is it mostly the same. Also, what is the holiday on 8/1?

Thanks,

the holiday on 1st August (1.8 to us here! better get used to it!!) is the Swiss National Day. A bit like your 4th July, but much older. It dates to 1291!!! traditional celebrations include bonfires on mountain tops and near the lakes as well as fireworks. Some places have their fireworks on 31 July but most on 1 August.

The Saturday market is a bit bigger than the Teusday one. there is a lso a small market most other days of the week.
