Vevey is gearing up for a festive summer thanks to the 2019 Winegrowers Festival, which will be in full swing from 18 July to 11 August. A daily programme of entertainment will accompany the festivities.
This summer, the heart of Vevey will beat to the rhythm of the Winegrowers Festival. From 18 July to 11 August, non-stop festivities will accompany this spectacular event orchestrated by Daniele Finzi Pasca. From morning until night, the town will be transformed into a huge, beautiful open-air festival. Multiple stages will offer music, folklore, chansons, theatre and even a children's circus. As regards food and drink, visitors will be spoilt for choice: offerings will range from local products to the exotic Terraces of the World and the gourmet pleasures of the Lake Pavilion! As a foretaste of pleasures to come, the Terraces of the Winegrowers' Brotherhood next to the arena will open on 20 May, with the finest view of the lake from Vevey. On 18 and 27 July and 3 August, the Winegrowers' Brotherhood processions – unmissable highlights of the summer festival – will feature thousands of costumed voluntary actors parading through Vevey.
