Despite the uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation, it looks like for now, many events are taking place in September. Some are well known, many are already beloved by Geneva families. Bear in mind, that due to Covid-19 restrictions, most events have participants limits, can be cancelled at the last minute, and require prior booking.

Just as a reminder, so that we can all stay safe:

  • if you or anyone in your household is not feeling 100% well – stay at home.
  • wear the mask properly (cover your mouth AND nose),
  • disinfect your hands frequently, especially when out and about.
