Geneva invites its inhabitants to celebrate Swiss National Day along the water

Once again this year, the City of Geneva has taken up the challenge of organising National Day festivities in line with the health situation. The City wanted to offer its inhabitants a convivial National Day open to all and focussing on water.

The water of the lake, the water of the Rhone, the water of the fountains, water as an ecological issue, the water we are made of – this year, the festivities will go with the flow.

Stéphanie Gautier and Antoine Frammery have dreamed up a programme that will run from dawn to midnight in five venues around the bay. Unusual and neo-traditional concerts, themed guided visits, performances and activities for children – there will be something for every taste and every generation. For the most part, the artists on the programme will be Swiss or from the local region.

As usual, the festivities will include an official ceremony which will take place at 7.45 p.m. at the Rotonde du Mont-Blanc.

There will be no catering on site. However, the bars, restaurants and summer refreshments stands around the bay will offer anyone attending the events the chance to eat or enjoy a drink close to the different venues.

In order to comply with the current health regulations, audience gauges are limited by event. Access to the shows is possible without a COVID certificate and wearing a mask is not mandatory. The use of hydroalcoholic gel and respect for the safety distance are required upon entering the sites. Any symptomatic person must not attend the events and needs to be tested and, where necessary, comply with the isolation instructions of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). Please respect the instructions displayed on site and follow the instructions given by the reception teams.
