Fête Des Vignerons 2019 Vevey Switzerland

We absolutely loved our recent visit to the Riviera Vaudoise where we tasted a variety of wonderful Swiss wine, all grown on the banks of Lac Léman. If you enjoy wine there is a very special event taking place in this area in 2019 which you really shouldn’t miss! It’s the Fête des Vignerons 2019.

Wine Festival Takes Place Every 25 Years

This very special wine festival only takes place every 25 years – so I don’t know about you but if I miss it next year, I will be pretty old by the time the next one comes round! 🙂

So What is the Fête Des Vignerons?

The Fête des Vignerons is basically a festival to honour and show support to the centuries-old wine-making traditions of this region. It is organised by the Brotherhood of Winegrowers, and takes place in Vevey, a town situated right in the heart of the Lavaux vineyards, in the Canton of Vaud, Switzerland.

First Living Tradition To Receive UNESCO Recognition

It was in fact honoured as the first living tradition in Switzerland to received UNESCO recognition back in 2016 and it promises to be an amazing event. Twenty thousand spectators from all over the world are expected to visit the area to see the show created by Daniele Finzi Pasca’s artistic team. There will be performances both day and night.

More than just a show, the Fête des Vignerons is a celebration by and for everyone; a real festival for the whole region. Tickets for the event went on sale on 17th September 2018 – so book yours soon if you would like to attend as they are bound to go quickly.

Shows are not recommended for children under 6 years old.
