Throughout the Fête des Vignerons 2019 from 18th July to 11th August, a vast area from the Jardin Doret to Entre-Deux-Villes, from east to west of the city of Vevey, will be dedicated, from 9am in the morning up until midnight during the week (2am on Fridays and Saturdays), to entertainment and restoration and to musical and cultural animations including those proposed by the cantons which are centre-staged every day. Bars, wine cellars and restaurants will welcome visitors of all generations to live a unique experience, all around the arena show, in the spirit of the Fête and its traditions. Local products will be particularly honoured. Fun and varied content, intended for both the family and adult audiences, will be offered free of charge. Street arts and ambulatory artistic performances will enliven the city day and night.
As part of the Ville en Fête, visitors will have access to sixty food and beverage stands, several ephemeral restaurants from 300 to 900 seats in all categories, including a World Village. Attached on three levels to the south face of the arena, the platform of the Confrérie des Vignerons, called the Terrasses de la Confrérie, will focus on Swiss wines and Vaud products. The Terrasses de la Confrérie will open their doors on 20 May 2019. The majority of stands and restaurants will offer Swiss gastronomy, as well as various cuisines from all around the world. Each Cantonal Day will be an opportunity for the restaurant owners of the festival and Vevey to offer Cantonal specialities.
The Confrérie des Vignerons offers three processions throughout the city of Vevey, in addition to the processions of the invited cantons, with actors-extras and actresses-extras of the show: 18 July at 11:30am, following the show including the Coronation, 27 July at 3pm and 3 August at 3pm.
Free animations are available all day as part of the Ville en Fête.
