Ohio Swiss Festival

Sep 27, 2017 - Sep 30, 2017

Downtown Sugarcreek



The Ohio Swiss Festival began in 1953 as a way to help the Ohio Swiss Cheese Association, based in Sugarcreek, to sell its excess cheese and to celebrate the Sugarcreek area's Swiss Heritage. Today, it continues to be celebrated on the fourth weekend after Labor Day. Friday & Saturday provide two full days of entertainment and events such as costume and yodeling contests, the Steinstonssen (throwing of the stone), the Swiss Cheese Chase 5K, and a kiddie and grand parade!
