About Us

The primary purpose of the Swiss-American Association of Connecticut is to cultivate the social experiences of the Swiss and friends of Switzerland in Connecticut. The association also aims to preserve the social and cultural heritage of Switzerland while fostering a friendship between Switzerland and the U.S.


We maintain our mission by organizing regular social events. These events include:

  • First of August Swiss National Day picnic
  • Christmas luncheon with a visit from Samichlaus
  • Fasnacht potluck
  • Spring General Assembly members lunch

We also organize other gatherings throughout the year such as movie screenings, cultural outings, cookie swaps and Swiss dinners. At all of these events you will meet other Swiss, make new friends, and celebrate a culture and country.
