Indiana wines, twirling batons and culinary delights that will tempt your taste buds await as the Swiss Wine Festival celebrates as well as salutes the cultural heritage of Switzerland County, Indiana. Now in its 42nd year, the four-day event, held on Vevay's riverfront, uniquely blends tradition and fun for the whole family.

From opening day on Thursday to closing time on Sunday evening the Swiss Wine Festival caters to all ages and interests. Arousing polka music to toe-tapping country tunes emanate from the three entertainment stages. The Little Swiss Polka Dancers, children in colorful Swiss costumes, will delight and entertain.

Riverboat cruises, on the scenic Ohio River, allow passengers to enjoy the magnificent countryside nestled amid the towering Indiana and Kentucky hillsides. The Wine Pavilion and Beer Garden afford spots of tranquility where visitors can converse with old acquaintances and newly met travelers. Hefty stone tosses and splashing grape stomps beckon those who favor adventure. Enjoy the Grand Festival Parade on Saturday morning and plan to stay for the fireworks extravaganza hours later, with loads of activities in between. Antiques, Arts and Crafts and Amish Goods will entice the shopper in everyone.

To reach the excitement at the Paul Ogle Riverfront Park, travelers just need to head 2 blocks south at the junction of Indiana highways 56 and 156 in Vevay. The fun, river, unforgettable enjoyment and a hearty welcome await you for a Grape Get-Together.
