The origin of the Swiss Days event date back to the late 1940’s as the harvest was being completed, local farmers and ranchers got together for a celebration of bountiful harvest.
“Harvest Days” became Swiss Days and presented the opportunity to dress in the traditional clothing unique to the canton or region of Switzerland where our ancestors were born.
As Swiss Days grew into a major event and attracting tens of thousands of visitors to our beautiful high mountain town, various groups donated their time to prepare food and beverage for our guests. It is a two day event over the labor day weekend each year. Visitors come to see the parade, live entertainment, shop our unique craft fair, and eat great food.
