The Office of Tourism organizes the Baroque Festival each year, at the beginning of July, centered on the discovery of architectural sites in the Mount Blanc area. It consists of musical and cultural demonstrations such as recitals of songs, concerts, and conferences on the history of Baroque art. Within the hallowed walls of the Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral in Cordon, seven concerts take place over its week-long duration, featuring the music of Monteverdi, Purcell, Vivaldi, Bach, Haydn, and Mozart.
