Geneva Out & About: Week of September 24, 2012

September 24, 2012 / by / 0 Comment

There is a lot  to look forward to this week; including outdoor movies, festivals in Pâquis, Oktoberfest, an Australian festival and more! Ciné Chaises Longues: If you like outdoor cinemas, then grab your sweaters and blankets, and get ready to join this great initiative by Pré en Bulle – an association created to reinforce the community bond in Les Grottes. They will be showing 3 movies from the Soviet Union, from the 1920s. Films start under the stars at 8.30pm. I will be there early to grab a drink and to taste some pirojki (a Russian and Ukrainian specialty). The bar opens at 7.45pm on Rue de la Sibérie (Square Berger). The good news is that they will show the films even if it’s raining, but please note that there will then be a change of location. (Rain Location: Ilot 13 on rue de Montbrillant). Les Grottes. September 26-28.   Sonopack Festival and Les Pâquis sont à la rue: two big events in Pâquis this weekend! Sonopack aims to support local artists, while also collaborating with International ones. Fantastic DJs will be mixing all styles of music at Salle du Môle, Silencio, La Petite Reine, L’Aiglon and other venues (check out the full program here). […]

Tous en Selle with the Red Cross How about doing a bit of sport for a good cause? Why not join this cycling event organised in the Geneva countryside, in the villages of Presinge and Jussy?

Bains de Pâquis for sunrise concerts

Geneva Out & About: Week of August 13, 2012

Aubes Musicales: Music at Dawn Not a morning person? Me neither! But I can guarantee that you won’t regret the early start when you visit Bains des Pâquis at sunrise for some live music! Concerts take place daily at 6am, until September 2, and vary in genre. Still not convinced? Neither was I! I really like my sleep and would not be considered a morning person. My friend was so insistent, however, that she literally had to drag me (and bribe me with croissants and coffee!) before I would attend. Let’s just say that I am forever grateful to my friend because Aubes Musicales is genuinely a fantastic way to start your day!  The views of the lake and the mountains at dawn are amazing; especially because the changing light in the sky is so beautiful. You can either go just for the music, or you can enjoy it while also going for a morning swim. Watching the town wake up is a unique experience, and you will be filled with positive energy for the rest of the day! The light is different everyday, so it really is Geneva like you’ve never seen it before. There are bands of every […]
