Cheese Days Parade

Guidelines - The Swiss Colony Cheese Days Parade

THE SWISS COLONY CHEESE DAYS PARADE will step off from the Green County Fairgrounds on Sunday, September 18, 2016, at 12:30 pm.  The parade route closes at noon.  After that time - no one is allowed to use the route except for official sanctioned parade-related business.  For example - clowns and pre-parade entertainment are allowed on the route beginning at noon.  

Entries have now closed - with the POSSIBLE exception of entertainment units.  Contact the Cheese Days office with questions at 608.325.7771.  NOTE:  all business, club, organization or non-profit entries are required to follow the parade theme.  Please note this does NOT apply to entertainment units (bands, music, clowns, stunts, etc); we will continue to welcome entertainment units from any geographic area.  Entertainment units are not required to adhere to the theme - as their role is to entertain the audience.

Businesses and groups are REQUIRED to appropriately theme their entries – to reflect or to honor the area's Swiss heritage and cheese/dairy industries – as well as to provide entertainment for parade viewers.
