Heidi Folk Festival and Heidi Play


  • New Glarus High School Auditorium 53574 (map)

Welcome to the Heidi Folk Festival on the last weekend in June.

Enjoy the last weekend of June in historic New Glarus. Join us for food, farmers market, blues music and the historic performance of The Heidi Play.

The Heidi Family Fun and Market will be held at the New Glarus Town Hall parking lot at 26 5th Avenue. Kids activities, including a Heidi story time with the New Glarus Public Library, bubbles, crafts, Scherenschnitte with Linda, Yoga with Kids and the Green County Humane Society will be there with some pets for the kids to love on (and maybe someone will find a new friend to take home) and much more! Family Fun will take place from 9:00 a.m.-1:15 p.m on Saturday, June 29th.

The Heidi Play tells the classic story of an orphaned Swiss girl who manages her struggles with warmth and charm, making friends and family along the way.

This timeless classic will entertain you, even if you already know the story by heart. And then it becomes even more engaging with the addition of live goats and kittens.

Since 1965, New Glarus has hosted the play in the summer. The proceeds generated are used for scholarships, helping local students further their education.

Rain or shine, the play will be held in the comfortable, climate-controlled high school auditorium at 1701 2nd Street, New Glarus.
