NEW GLARUS — The New Glarus Chamber of Commerce and Swiss Center of North America have announced the postponement of the 175th Anniversary celebration weekend in 2020.
The two organizing committees in New Glarus and Canton Glarus jointly agreed it was prudent to postpone, due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic and travel restrictions. Instead, the communities will celebrate 175+1 from July 29 to Aug. 1, 2021.
This is not the first time New Glarus anniversary celebrations have been postponed; in 1945, centennial events were delayed until 1946 so that soldiers would have time to return home from World War II. For more information, visit swisstown.com.
