Folk markets

For more than 40 years, the Place du Marché (Market Square) and that of the Hôtel de Ville have been the scene of the traditional folk markets.

All summer, from the beginning of July to the beginning of September, from 10.00 to 13.00, crowds of people, from Vevey and surrounding areas, as well as tourists from all over the world, have been gathering under the Grenette and in the Town Hall Square, to enjoy the summer warmth and festive atmosphere, while tasting the wines from the local vineyards. The stands are lively and colourful, thanks to groups of musicians and folk dancers all adding to the convivial setting.
By buying a souvenir glass, which has a different motif each Saturday, you can taste the delicious wines from the region and get ready to meet the winemakers of Lavaux and Chablais, craftsmen, dancers or musicians and alphorn players.
