Did you know Switzerland has four official languages? Do you Speak Swiss? is the theme of this year's Swiss Festival which will take place on the 27th and 28th of October. The exciting news is that it will take place over 2 days and at a brand new location.

The Festival will take place at the historic Eildon Mansion in St.Kilda. This is where Alliance Francaise de Melbourne have their home and the location offers a great combination of outdoor and indoor spaces just perfect for Melbourne's sometimes fickle weather. It is also very easy to reach by public transport and car.

Ok the Swiss mountains won't be there but many other Swiss things will be


The festival has, as its theme, Do you speak Swiss?, which will be all about the different regions and languages of Switzerland. There will be a scavenger hunt to guide you through many aspects of the four languages, but there will be to help, just in case.

Entertainment for children, Swiss food, Swiss lifestyle features and, of course, Swiss entertainment will all be part of this popular festival. No doubt there will also be Swiss chocolate, Swiss cheese, Swiss sausages and many other regional specialties from the German, French, Italian and Romansch parts of Switzerland.
