Geneva Festival

When the earth, air, water and fire create a festival…

Geneva Tourism, its Department of Events and the Geneva Festival Organization Committee wish our hundreds of thousands of visitors a very festive and warm welcome to Switzerland's biggest tourist event.

There are attractions to fully satisfy all tastes and desires, with more than 160 free shows and concerts, the 'Caravan du Monde' and the 15 countries that comprise it, the culinary specialities from 32 countries, the artisans and the fun fair.

Dance under the trees in the English Garden during the Pre-Festival from July 20, take part in the 2nd slowUp with tens of thousands of cyclists, roller skaters and walkers, enjoy one of the world's largest fireworks displays set to music and thrill to the exploits of jet pilots and aerial acrobatics during the air show… even more reasons to be part of these exceptional moments this summer, from July 20 to August 13.

Welcome to Geneva, to all our visitors from around the world, to our Swiss friends from every part of our country, to the citizens and neighbours of the region… we will celebrate together the 60th anniversary of the Geneva Festival. The festival is about to begin!
