King's Champions show is a 45-minute, high energy, high-impact

Each one is an authentic joust pass.

A New Glarus Labor Day weekend tradition since
Join us as our community continues its 66-year tradition of telling
of how Wilhelm Tell, his crossbow, and an apple
helped Switzerland gain independence from the Habsburg tyrant,
The story was told by the famous 18th century German playwright

bring the story to life on the natural outdoor stage to create
a unique theatrical experience.
