September Festivals?

We will be entertaining several different guests throughout September and as we are new here ourselves thought it might be fun to try to include a festival or two. I can google and find festivals but I'm wondering from people who have actually been to them, which might be fun for elderly visitors interested in food/history/culture. They can't involve hiking up a mountain, etc. (i.e. is it really fun to watch the cows come home?)

Any favorites? (Please give me dates and location)

Feel free to also suggest others for us outside of September, but my main question is for upcoming ones that we can take our parents to!

Re: September Festivals?

There's the Neuchâtel Wine Festival (Fête des Vendanges) on the last weekend of the month. There's parades, including a corseau fleuri (trailers decorated with flowers) on the Sunday afternoon, and Guggenmusik. Easy to access by train, and very joly.

Music festivals are mostly over by now though.

Re: September Festivals?

Has anyone been to the medieval festival somewhere near Baden?

We went to the local festival in Thalwil today and it was tons of fun. Wish they had arrived a week earlier! If your little town has something coming up I'd love to hear about it!
