Overview: Santa Clara Swiss Days started as a fundraising activity to contribute to the upkeep of the aging Relief Society Building. The Swiss Days Fun Run 5K is the primary fundraiser over the weekend, which benefits the Santa Clara community. Other events during the September event include a parade, fireworks, pie-baking contest, Little Swiss Mister and Miss Pageant, live music, pioneer hands-on activities, dog agility showcases, and fireworks. Vendor booths and exhibits will be open throughout Swiss Days as well.
When: A late September event each year. September 21st-23rd, 2017.
Where: Canyon View Park and Heritage Square

Details: Perhaps the most unique feature of the event is the Swiss Days Cows. Momma and baby cows (inanimate ones of course!) can be decorated and displayed to correspond to the Swiss Days changing theme.
Swiss Days is held at Canyon View Park at 1400 Canyon View Dr. and Heritage Square at 3020 Santa Clara Drive in Santa Clara.
