As the highlight of the summer season in the lakeside city, Les Fêtes de Genève, meaning Geneva Celebrations or Geneva Festival, is a 10-day event held annually in the early days of August. Boasting singers, music concerts and shows, street performers and rides, the fair is crowned by the famous fireworks display attracting hundreds of thousands of people in the streets of Geneva.

The Geneva Festival attracts massive crowds of up to 500,000 people to the shore of Lake Geneva, so be sure to take this into consideration when visiting planning a trip to the city.
