Basel-Stadt, Basel-Landschaft and Jura in Vevey

The cantons of Basel-Stadt, Basel-Landschaft and Jura were (re) united in Vevey.

The Fête des Vignerons takes place at intervals of about one generation or twenty to twenty-five years.

It is also the first time that the 26 cantons make their appearance on one of the 21 days of the event.

More than 5 000 actors, 800 singers and 100 musicians perform twice a day in a perfectly arranged spectacle in a temporary stadium (for 20 000 spectators) on the market square.

The gods of wine were in a bad mood on 28 July but the three cantons were (re) united in Vevey.
