Swiss Historical Village Harvest Fest

  • Swiss Historical Village 612 7th Avenue New Glarus, WI, 53574 United States (map)

Connect with 19th century Swiss immigrant life at our annual Harvest Fest where daily routines and responsibilities of the past – cheese making, blacksmithing, yarn spinning, basket weaving – are re-created. Enjoy a Swiss brätzeli cookie-making demonstration. Talk to Civil War re-enactors, the “Bee Man,” a wheelwright and a sausage maker. (You can even buy their products!) For those of you who are feeling ambitious, practice your three Rs in a one-room schoolhouse. After all that work, relax and enjoy some live music on our picturesque grounds. Don't forget to give our Bernese mountain dog a pat before you leave!
