New Glarus Chamber of Commerce Announces 2020 Event Schedule


December 26, 2019

The New Glarus Chamber of Commerce recently released the 2020 festival and events schedule.

One change to note is that Polkafest and New Glarus Beer, Bacon & Cheese will be held June 5-6, the first weekend of June, rather than the second weekend. This change is to allow more time between Polkafest and Blues, Brews & Food Trucks on the last weekend of June.

In honor of the 175th anniversary of the founding of New Glarus, the weekend of July 30-August 2 will have several extra festivals and events in addition to Firefest, Alphornman Triathlon, and Volksfest.
