Impelled by economic adversity in Switzerland, 118 emigrants from the canton of Glarus settled New Glarus in 1845. “Little Switzerland,” as the community often is called, remains essentially Swiss in character. Emblems of the Swiss cantons adorn buildings and street signs. Dairying and cheesemaking brought New Glarus its prosperity.
In late June the community celebrates its heritage with 3 days of food, music and other entertainment during the Heidi Festival and Taste of New Glarus. The Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend, the highlight of the Wilhelm Tell Festival is the outdoor performance of the Wilhelm Tell drama; other events include a yodel contest and an art fair.
New Glarus is a popular departure point for the Sugar River State Trail, a 24-mile hiking, bicycling and snowmobiling route leading to Brodhead.
