The 19th annual Mennonite Heritage Village Watermelon Festival took place in Swift Current on July 28, 2013. Visitors enjoyed  slices of cold watermelon in combination with “roll kuchen”or rolled cookie, which is a deep-fried pastry prepared in large vats of boiling oil. The festival is the main fundraising event for the village and funds are used for the upkeep of the homestead and church. The Mennonite Heritage Village, which is located next to Kinetic Park, is open from 1 to 6 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays until September 2.
