Each generation has its Fête des Vignerons! Every 20 to 25 years the lavish celebration of viticultural traditions brings together hundreds of thousands of people in Vevey, a city located about 20 kilometres from Lausanne.
This year, over a million visitors came to Vevey, making this 12th edition the most popular in history. In addition to the performances of the Fête’s famous show, colourful parades crossed the city from one end to the other for the pleasure of the locals and spectators from the four corners of Switzerland and beyond. Lausanne 2020 had the privilege of parading on August 11, the last day of the Fête, when the Canton of Vaud was honoured. Watch an overview:
