Tulip Festival

MORGES, PARC DE L'INDEPENDANCE - Every spring, Morges hosts the Tulip Festival at Parc de l'Indépendance on the shore of Lake Geneva. An eagerly awaited date in an exceptional site opposite the Alps.

Fête de la Tulipe, Parc de l'Indépendance

The Tulip Festival (no admission charge) lasts six weeks and presents more than 120,000 tulips of 300 varieties in Parc de l'Indépendance in Morges. The diversity of these banks of flowers remind fans of the tulip’s huge range of shapes and colours.

The first varieties are in bloom in mid-April. They are a great attraction for families who thus inaugurate the first lakeside outing of the year. Small weekend animations are regularly organised in the Parc de l'Indépendance. Drinks and snacks are available on site.

As the Tulip Festival was created on the occasion of the 50 years of the Lake Geneva Horticultural Society in 1971, the horticulture apprentices of the Morges Centre for Professional Studies create several banks of flowers every year.

Parc de l’Indépendance is a magnificent site with several monuments and remarkable trees at the mouth of river Morges, which recall the celebrations in 1898, the date of the independence of the Lake Geneva Region.

Tulip Festival 2014: 29th Mars to 11th May
