The folklore and regionalist group of Pays Gavot and the city of Gap was founded in February 1972 by Haut-Alpins who were anxious to preserve the arts and folk traditions of northern Provence. Today it has different sections: traditional dances, young age folklore, singing, alpine occitan lessons, occulan-alpine theater, bilingual magazine Lou Semenaire. Since 1987, it organizes an international festival of folklore, in mid-July. It offers various theater performances in the Provençal language, songs and dances (spring show, pastoral during the Christmas holidays), and maintains the tradition.
Its name comes from Occitan Alpine Gavouot, a term under which all the Provençals of the mountain can be recognized, from the high valleys of the former County of Nice to Briançonnais, passing through the Occitan valleys of Italian Piedmont. "N'es pas Gavouot qui voou" ("is not Gavot who wants"), proclaims the motto of the group, which takes up an ancestral formula that appears on a sundial of the valley of Ubaye dated 1609. It is also said that the Bas-Provençaux said of the Gavots that they had "nothing but coat."
