Event description


We are delighted to announce that, the Swiss Festival is back as the Swiss Alpine Festival - Alp, Alp & Away! 

With a long tradition amongst the Swiss community in Melbourne and surrounds, the festival will showcase all things SWISS - from food, music, language and traditions, providing an occasion to come together to celebrate Swiss culture.
The event can be enjoyed by kids, families, culture and language enthusiasts and anyone who loves a great day out with some amazing food, company and entertainment!

This years festival will be held over two days at The Pig & Whistle Tavern Main Ridge on the Mornington Peninsula, so you can come for one day, or if you just can't get enough, come for both! The Pig & Whistle Tavern offers a great variety of outdoor and indoor areas, with a lush green atmosphere to add to the Swiss feel.
