Swiss National Day Celebration, 41th edition
Every year, on August 1st, Swiss people celebrate their National Holiday with a great display of pride. Every summer, on the Saturday closest to that date, the Federation of Swiss Societies in Eastern Canada organizes a massive celebration at the Chalet Altitude 400 at Mont SUTTON. The Eastern Townships is home to an important population of Swiss citizens who were attracted by the hilly landscapes, the rich agrarian lands and the quality of life they found in the region. They kept some pride for their culture and national traditions.
