This Saturday – International Pot luck Meal in Nyon
This Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 June, it’s the Interculturelle weekend in Nyon. Over two days all the different nationalities in Nyon will be getting together for various events. One of these events is a potluck meal at 18:30 where Nyon residents are invited to take a dish typical frrom their country down to the Salle Communale where there will be a big table with other international food for everyone to share.
The editor of Living in Nyon will be there to share some food too (before dashing off to the final night of Caribana) so if you want to bring a dish to serve approx 4 people then come along!
Also in the Salle Communale on the Saturday there will be an exhibition entitled “Nyon and Immigration” showing the history of all the different nationalities that have come to live in the town, and all the clubs that have sprung up through this immigration. There is a website for information on the weekend.
Strawberry fields forever
The strawberry picking season is a short one but it’s a fun activity to do. If you fancy going along to pick some of these summer fruits, then here is a list of local places you can do this. The nearest to Nyon is Genolier. There is a website with picking times and a map of how to get to the strawberry fields.
This list was taken from the Monday update of what’s on around the Geneva, France and Vaud area in an email newsletter called “Lisa’s Picks of the Week” compiled by the editor of Know it All Passport.
More events are listed on the Know it all Passport website too under the “events calendar” section. It’s free to subscribe to this Monday update see the site for details.
