About Festivals in Switzerland

There are a variety of Switzerland events that take place year round. The Swiss people strongly believe in unity and tradition; what better way to keep tradition alive than to celebrate it?

Festivals in Switzerland vary depending on the location and the time of the year, as most festivals have religious history and follow the calendar. Gruyères is a medieval castle town where every January, the cheese festival is held. Patrons can walk down the cobbled streets and sample delicious cheeses during this all-day festival. The "Fête du printemps" is an ancient festival for kids, where two 7-year-old children are chosen and crowned the May Queen and the May King. This usually occurs near the beginning of May. The "Egg collecting" or "Eierleset" is an ancient folk celebration of fertility, and it is held every second year at the beginning of April.

Switzerland music festivals mostly are held during the summer months. Some of the most popular include Montreux Jazz Festival, SnowpenAir (for rock fans), and the Paléo Festival, which is Switzerland's largest outdoor music event. Over 230,000 music fans flock to this event every year. In addition to these, there are many more festivals and events held in Switzerland. So many, that it would take years to list them all!
