Swiss Heritage Days | Fri & Sat. July 27 & 28, 2018

Come to Alma, Wisconsin to help us celebrate our town's Swiss Heritage! Help us coronate the next Swiss Miss!  Alp Horns will inaugurate her reign! Also, enjoy polka music, accordian players, and yodeling!  Restaurants and other locations in town offer special Swiss food items. The Swiss Rock Toss, or Steinstossen, is a much talked about event. See how far you can toss a 20lb rock! Castlerock Museum has exhibit displays highlighting Swiss Pikeman & Halberdiers, and a short Swiss history lesson is offered every hour at the Alma Area Museum. Local art galleries and gift shops sponsor a “hiking trail” with Swiss-inspired items for sale, along with a prize for one lucky hiker. "Hikers" receive an Alma Swiss passport and get stamps at participating locations. The passports are then put into a drawing to win 150 Alma Dollars! Swiss Heritage Days ends with an evening of music and dancing in the street!  Join us for a fun-filled weekend, and get into the spirit by wearing Swiss-inspired dress or simply anything red and white!
