Christmas Markets

Bô Noël, Christmas market in Lausanne

Nov 23, 2017 - Dec 31, 2017
Lausanne - Markets

Bô Noël is a unique and original concept enlivening Lausanne during the four Advent weeks. Activities for children and adults, as well as stalls of designers, winegrowers and terroir producers are spread around the city to give each venue in the city centre a festive air.

The programme of Bô Noël is in the image of Lausanne: close to its traditions, but resolutely modern. During the entire Advent period, there’s Christmas magic for everyone: children’s tales, the unique item that makes the perfect gift or a festive evening with terroir products. There are three market venues with three distinctive styles. On Place St-François, people gather and browse in the large covered market, where there are concerts on some evenings. To discover and buy products by local designers, Place Pépinet is the place to go. Whereas Bô Caveau, under the arcs of Grand-Pont, brings together the winegrowers of the region, where you are sure to find the wine that accompanies New Year’s Eve.

The arcs of Grand-Pont also accommodate the Children's Village proposing activities and entertainment on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday: fairy tales, games and visits to Bô-Father Christmas!
