Free admission on Sunday 25 September, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Plainpalais community centre to participate in the 13th edition of this convivial event. Kids, teenagers and parents are invited to discover the latest board games and a whole host of fun activities. A full day of entertainment together with helpful advice from the professional games librarians. 

Jeux en famille

Following a two-year break due to the pandemic, «Jeux en famille», will make its big comeback on Sunday 25 September 2022, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Plainpalais community centre. And this will be the first time the event has been held in autumn. With all screens left safely at home, visitors of all ages are invited to rediscover a wide range of board games which still have a rosy future ahead. Because new games are still brought out every year.

To help parents and children choose which activities to try, the professional games librarians will be on hand with all their expertise and advice. “Jeux en famille” is the opportunity to shed light on their dedication and commitment in the twelve games libraries subsidised by the City.

The activities awaiting you

Take advantage of a huge choice of games in the different areas:

  • in the main hall, board games with the very latest offerings and timeless success stories;
  • magic tricks;
  • the new game of skill, Pok Game;
  • on the stage, Kapla and its giant constructions;
  • a symbolic games area for young and old alike, with musical interludes in the morning;
  • on the terrace, in a specially prepared yurt, bolder visitors can try to find their way out of different “escape rooms”;
  • on the first floor, creative workshops focussing on origami and sculptures with paper/cardboard, from 10.15 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. (limited number of places);
  • and, throughout the day, balloon artists will make their own special contribution to the atmosphere.

An information stand will be set up to help families find their way around.

“Jeux en famille” is an event organised by the Schools and Child Institutions Service. With the arrival of autumn, this convivial event has something for everyone. And what’s more, admission to all the activities is entirely free of charge.
