Description:

Engraving of the famous wine festival at Vevey, a small town on Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

The Confrérie des Vignerons (Brotherhood of Winegrowers) organises the Winegrowers’ Festival (Fête des Vignerons) four or five times each century (one per generation) to celebrate its wine-growing traditions and culture. On those occasions an arena for 16,000 spectators is built in the marketplace — the Grande Place, which is the second-biggest marketplace in Europe, after Lisbon, Portugal. The festivals date from the 18th century; the last five were in 1905, 1927, 1955, 1977 and 1999.
