Swiss Heritage Days in Alma, Wisconsin! July 28-29th, 2017

Experience Swiss culture and help us celebrate our town's unique heritage! Restaurants and other locations in town offer special Swiss food items. Throughout the day on Saturday, enjoy polka music, accordian players, yodeling, and Alpine horns!  Bring your Polka dancing shoes!  The Swiss Rock Toss, or Steinstossen, is a much talked about event. Castlerock Museum, which houses a world class collection of medieval armament, has exhibit displays highlighting Swiss Pikeman and 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 special 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 $100 Alma Dollars! Join us for a fun-filled weekend, and get into the spirit by wearing Swiss-inspired dress or simply anything red and white!
