The Swiss Festival 2018 is a classic cultural event on the calendar of Melbourne and surrounds.
Once a year Swiss expats, families with kids and friends of Swiss Culture come together to celebrate and showcase traditional values of Switzerland, food and drink, entertainment incl. yodelling, alphorn blowing, folk dancing in traditional dress and choir music.
A number of stalls will sell specialties (e.g. cheese,chocolate etc.) and merchandise.
As the small Swiss community in Victoria is widely spread out our festival will address that issue by inviting from all over the country to join in the festivity and remember the old country.
This festival welcomes everybody who wishes to find out more about Swiss culture.
It is a free event.
This year we have decided to hold the Swiss Festival at Alliance Francaise’s St. Kilda venue.
It is located at 51 Grey St, St Kilda, just off Fitzroy Street. You can easily get there by public transport using the No; 3, 16 or 96 Tram. Car parking is not available at the venue but there is on street parking.
