Swiss Wine Festival: great opportunity to raise funds for groups


The 46th annual Swiss Wine Festival is taking applications for workers for this year’s event.

The mission of the Swiss Wine Festival is to celebrate the heritage of Switzerland County; enhance the community; and provide a means for non-profit organizations to raise money to promote their civic and charitable programs.

Workers must be at least 21 years of age, and available to work for a minimum of three hours. The festival will be held from Thursday, August 24th through Sunday, August 27th. The application is available on the festival website:; or may be picked up at the Visitors Center or Swiss Wine Festival office. The application deadline is Thursday, July 27th, 2017.

The Swiss Wine Festival relies on the support of the local community for a successful event. Every organization is urged to take this opportunity to not only support the community; but earn money for your Switzerland County organization.
