The JEMA Vaud are run by the Cultural Affairs Service (SERAC) of the Canton of Vaud attached to the Department of Culture, Infrastructure and Human Resources (DCIRH) .

Since 2014, these Days, which are totally free for the public, have allowed craftsmen and artisans from Vaud to pass on their passion as well as the secrets of their trade within the framework of a three-day event taking place every spring.
