Sugarcreek's swiss-themed downtown transports visitors to a quaint Alpine Village by featuring Swiss architecture, Swiss music playing throughout the streets, beautiful Swiss murals on our storefronts, Swiss Cheese at many local stores  and  restaurants, Swiss food at Beachy’s Country Chalet, red geraniums (a popular flower in Switzerland), Swiss flags,  and  of course, the recent addition of the World’s Largest Cuckoo Clock, which puts on a fun Swiss show every half hour  from  9am-9pm throughout the season. All of this can be viewed  from  a seat on our horse-drawn trolley,  where  our Amish driver shares the story of our Village  and  answers visitors’ questions.

In Sugarcreek, visitors also get to experience what they most love about Amish Country: eating delicious home-cooked meals  and  bakery-fresh desserts, buying handcrafted items ranging  from  quilts  and  furniture to bulk foods  and  gifts,  and  witnessing the simpler way of life through independent exploration  or  back roads guided tours. They can also learn more about Amish life by watching The Confession  and  Half-Stitched: the Musical, two live shows about the Amish at the Carlisle Inn,  and  by visiting the John S. Yoder Home, an authentic Amish home built in 1869 now open for tours.

We also showcase both our Swiss  and  Amish Heritage through unforgettable events  and  educational experiences. We are home to the Ohio Swiss Festival, which features contests for yodeling, Swiss costumes,  and  Swiss cheese  and  the popular Steinstossen (a 138-pound stone throw). Each year the entire village looks forward to this unique September festival that helps give us our proud identity. For a more traditional educational experience, we have the Alpine Hills Historical Museum. Its three floors are filled with displays  and  audio-visual presentations relating to the earlier days of our Swiss  and  Amish heritage. Visitors can also view the Brick Wall Sculpture, which contains a series of 13 sculptured brick panels that show the story  and  history of our area,  or  admire works by a fifth generation carver of Swiss heritage  and  Ernest Mooney Warther’s grandson at recently-opened David Warther Carvings on the edge of town.

We have many opportunities for outdoor recreation nearby as well including Willandale Golf Club’s 27-hole course, Cabin Creek Golf’s two Challenging 18-Hole Miniature Golf Courses, Year-Round Driving Range, Sand Volleyball  and  Shuffleboard Courts,  and  Outdoor Batting Cages,  and  the Farm at Walnut Creek’s horse-drawn wagon ride through an exotic animal paradise. The Fabulous 50s Fling  and  Car Show, the largest fifties festival in Ohio, is hosted here in June too!

With all this  and  more, isn’t it time you visited Sugarcreek?
