Fête des Vignerons 2019 from 18th July to 11th August 2019

Once in a generation, the Fête des Vignerons dazzles hundreds of thousands of spectators in Vevey, the medieval town situated at the heart of the viticultural region Lavaux, east of Lausanne. It is the first living Swiss tradition to have been recognised by UNESCO.

The show represents a year in the life of the vineyard through twenty scenes starting and finishing with the harvest. 

The choreographies of the scenes are performed by 5,500 actors and actresses in costumes, all inhabitants of the region. A total, magical, grandiose, dynamic and poetic performance conceived at 360°, it mixes with the music, the songs that carry the poems of the authors and the crowd movement images and videos projected on giant screens as well as on the immense LED floor of the arena.

In addition the the main show in the arena, a vast area from east to west of the city of Vevey will be dedicated to entertainment and restoration and to free musical and cultural animations.
