Geneva FestivalGeneva Festival With its ten days packed to bursting with activity, Geneva Festival is the city’s biggest celebrity.
Geneva gets its name from Lake Geneva, also known as Lac Leman, and is one of Europe’s most important cities. If you like the idea of going to a festival which has established itself as a tradition in Switzerland’s second city, just step this way. Geneva festival first took place in 1947 and the celebrations include music, dance, theatre and street artists. The festival takes place every year in August. As well as leaving all its visitors with sweeter than sweet memories, the festival is also renowned for the educational and entertaining activities it lays on for children. If you are having so much fun that you lose track of where you are, there’s no need to worry: throughout the festival, transport is available until the late hours of the night.
