This weekend (on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th May ) it’s the Jardins en Fête which will be held in the park and grounds of the Château de Coppet. This event is dedicated to plants and the art of the garden and brings together gardening professionals all in one space. With over 130 exhibitors it is one of the biggest garden events in the region. Hester Macdonald from the Swiss Gardening School will also be at the show. Hester runs gardening courses in English throughout the year. See our post from 2014 when Living in Nyon attended one of her courses.
On Sunday 24th May, it’s the annual CGN Naval Parade and this year it will gather in Rolle from 10:00 – 19:00. The main choreography of boats will take place between 14:00 and 14:30 and can be seen from the quayside in Rolle. It’s an impressive sight when all the lovely Belle Epoque boats gather together in one place! See photos from last year.
On Friday 29th May it’s Neighbours’ Day in both Prangins and Nyon. If you have just arrived here and don’t yet know your neighbours, this event is an ideal time for neighbours to get together. Look out for posters in your building or community to see if anything is being organised in your area, if not, why not take the plunge and invite your neighbours over for an apéro to say “Bonjour!” If you don’t live in Nyon or Prangins, click here to find out when and where the event is taking place in your area.
