Settled in 1845 by Swiss immigrants, this picturesque community is a thriving showcase of Swiss heritage, architecture, customs, and cuisine. New Glarus residents observe Swiss traditions throughout the year; expect to hear plenty of yodeling and alphorns in a village famous as “America’s Little Switzerland.” Notable annual events include the Heidi Festival and Polka Fest, both in June, the Wilhelm Tell Festival over the Labor Day weekend, and Octoberfest in the fall. Just south of town, New Glarus Woods State Park offers 32 family campsites as well as a paved connector to the 22-mile Sugar River State Trail.
