‘La ville est à vous’ offers the population the chance to reclaim their district by organising:
- a garage sale;
- food stands;
- concerts, games and a range of free activities.
Venues and dates
Each event is held over one weekend in each district. The dates are different from one district to another.
All the events of ‘La ville est à vous’ take place every year in May, June and September.
‘La ville est à vous’ is organised by the inhabitants and managed in each district by associations or committees which assume responsibility for the organisation of the event.
The entire project is coordinated by the Service Agenda 21 – Ville durable of the City of Geneva. Its remit is to facilitate the links between the different committees.
‘La ville est à vous’ is based on the model of ‘La rue est à vous’, a street festival organised in the Pâquis district since 1993. This event is in turn inspired by the ‘Queen’s Day’ celebration in Amsterdam, held every year in April. The streets of Amsterdam play host to numerous events, stands and a ‘Vrijmarkt’ – a free market – offering anyone and everyone the chance to sell all kinds of objects in the street.
