How to get to the Fête des Vignerons?

From the very start of organising, two years ago, FEVI made sure to think about people with disabilities and reduced mobility and their reception.

The main goals:

  • That they feel welcome
  • That they feel safe
  • That they can access the festival with ease

In order to allow visitors with disabilities to enjoy the event in the best possible conditions, the organisers of the Fête des Vignerons have trained some of its volunteer messengers, present at all the information stands, to accompany and guide them. 

In partnership with the Haute Ecole de Santé Vaud (HESAV), nursing students will be at the disposition of people with reduced mobility and elderly people who find it difficult to walk. Identifiable by their green caps, rucksacks and armbands, they will be stationed in specific areas with wheelchairs to take people to the arena. They will also be located throughout the town, equipped with foldable chairs, creating a mobile rest zone in the case of fatigue or any other condition linked to disability. At the end of the show, visitors can call the student nurses to help with their return journey.
