The 2019 Fête des Vignerons (Winegrowers Festival) runs through August 11 and has transformed the Swiss city of Vevey into a festival of culture and fine dining, making it Switzerland’s summer capital. Staged once a generation since 1797 as a tribute to the vineyard laborers and the vine itself, the festival was last held in 1999.


Tickets are still available at the website of the Lake Geneva Region while accommodation info can be found at the Montreux Riviera website.
