The event was started in 1947 through the efforts of Luke's Hot Pots Resort owners, Joseph B. and Pauline S. Erwin. It was originally called Harvest Days. They formed a club known as the "Midway Boosters," which is still active, and whose members promote city improvements and activities. In order to attract larger crowds to Midway, the idea of a Swiss theme was created by Orma W. Wallengren (a.k.a. Clair Peterson) whose family owned and operated the Homestead, replacing the name and theme of Harvest Days with Swiss Days.Notable factsMidway was the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics cross-country and biathlon events, which took place at Soldier Hollow.The community is also known for the large "hot-pot" or geo-thermal caldera at the Homestead Resort.
