Swiss Historical Village Harvest Fest

Connect with 19th century Swiss immigrant life at our annual Harvest Fest where daily routines and responsibilities of the past - cheese making, blacksmithing, yarn spinning, basket weaving - are re-created. Enjoy a Swiss br├Ątzeli cookie-making demonstration. Talk to Civil War re-enactors, the "Bee Man," a wheelwright and a sausage maker. (You can even buy their products!) For those of you who are feeling ambitious, practice your "three Rs" in a one-room schoolhouse. After all that work, relax and enjoy some live music on our picturesque grounds.
