Fête de l'Escalade 2017
In 1602, the Duke of Savoy's troops met with resistance from the people of Geneva. More than 400 years later, the city continues to celebrate this event for an entire weekend. From Friday 8 to Sunday 10 December 2017, Fête de l'Escalade gives the city a new look with parades, traditions and bonfires. You are very welcome to celebrate one of the oldest traditions in Geneva!
