Every year in December, Parc des Bastions hosts the traditional Christmas market organised by and for children. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday 7 December, the city’s primary school children will have the opportunity to sell their toys and games in a heated marquee. Activities, food and drinks stalls will also be organised on site. A free afternoon snack will be provided for the children.
The children’s Christmas market will be back in les Bastions on Wednesday 7 December 2022, much to the delight of all the families in the city! Since 2007, in a heated marquee in Parc des Bastions, this event has brought together children wishing to give their books, toys or other belongings they no longer use a new lease of life.
In the run-up to Christmas, children are encouraged to put an end to waste by selling any of their books, toys, DVDs or sports equipment that is still in good condition. By selling second-hand games, toys and books, the pupils attending the City of Geneva’s primary schools are given an early taste of responsible consumption.
Enjoying a second lease of life, these objects will also make the daily life of other children a little more enjoyable. It is also an excellent opportunity to make children aware of the value of things. Any items that are unsold will be donated to Caritas Genève.
