Lausanne - Fun and Festivals

A free event in Lausanne held every year in July, the Festival de la Cité is a multi-disciplinary, ground-breaking festival, with unique creations, kids’ activities and a whole series of exciting concerts taking place over a week in different venues in the city.

Unexpected, unconventional, lively: there are many words that can be used to describe the favourite summer event for the residents of Lausanne. The Festival de la Cité is held in the Parc de Mon-Repos, in the heart of the city, in many novel venues and around the Cité. Kids, teenagers or adults, locals or tourists, the Festival de la Cité is geared to everyone. There’s something for everyone in the programme that combines theatre with music, acting with dance, circus acts with street art, bringing together performing arts, in situ art works, artistic installations and urban culture.

The Festival de la Cité is part of the Lausanne Estivale programme, which includes events, concerts, screenings and tours from May to September in Lausanne. The one thing all these 450 activities and events have in common? They’re completely free!
