Welcome to official website for the North American Swiss Singing Alliance (NASSA) Saengerfest 2018, held in HOLY TOLEDO!

Thank you to all the member choirs of NASSA for coming to Toledo and experiencing what a vibrant and thriving community we have. Thank you, Toledo, for coming out and supporting our group and to all who visited the Renaissance Hotel and experienced a little bit of yodeling. Thank you to our local media, especially WTGE Public Media and Lamar Advertising, for helping us get the word out that, "Yodeling is coming!"

We'll be sharing more on the website in the coming days, but in the meantime, sit back and relax, singers and Toledo Swiss Singers. We've earned a nice summer break.

Don't forget to order your exclusive "Yodel Better in Toledo" apparel, for a limited time! Learn more about Saengerfest apparel.

Check out our local media coverage and promotion.

Experience Luxury at our 4-star Accommodations

Hello to All from Toledo, Ohio, USA!

This is Mary Ann Hotz from the Toledo Swiss Singers and I am the housing chairman for Saengerfest 2018. If you have not been to Toledo for a long time, or maybe you have never been here, you will see many changes as the downtown continues to be revitalized with numerous new businesses, corporate headquarters, recreational areas, restaurants and other attractions.

UPDATE (6/1/18): The deadline to book hotel rooms under our group rate has passed. Limited rooms available. Please call the hotel directly for more information: (419) 244-2444. 

The hotel we chose is called the Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel. Although the hotel was first built in 1985, First Hospitality Group out of Chicago bought it over a year ago and they have done an amazing $31 million renovation. The hotel was completely gutted with new wiring, plumbing, heat/air, room fixtures, furniture etc and is nearing completion with the grand reopening less than 2 weeks away. The common areas and the rooms spotlight some of the things that Toledo is known for including the glass industry, Jeep and auto industry, Cpl Max Klinger from the "M*A*S*H" program, Toledo hockey and baseball teams. It is considered to be a 4-star luxury hotel. The hotel sits right on the Maumee River. In some areas there is a 360° view of the city. The 12th floor is now a restaurant/bar featuring small plates and a wood-fired pizza oven. From that area is access to an open-air terrace.

I can almost hear the yodeling and alphorns from that 12th floor terrace. 

Just a short walk across the street is the Valentine Theatre, where we will be holding the competition and grand concert. The Valentine is considered to be a showpiece in downtown Toledo. The Toledo Swiss Singers are confident you will be pleased with both the theater and the hotel.

If anyone has questions, I am just an email or phone call away.

We in Toledo are looking forward to this event and we hope you are as well.  Enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe out there.

About the Renaissance
Originally the Hotel Sofitel when it opened in the mid-1980s and many other brands over the years, the hotel closed for refurbishment in 2015. The inside of the revamped 12-story hotel is locally inspired, a mark of Renaissance hotels, part of the Marriott family. The Toledo theme is visible from the front entrance to every room. There are more than 240 guest rooms and a rooftop dining experience.
