Escalade Festival

Held in the historic old town of Geneva, the Escalade Festival is a sporting event for the whole family which commemorates the victory of Geneva over the Duke of Savoy in 1602. It features a running race ('Course de l'Escalade') for everyone and a traditional weekend festival with street parades where locals wear historical costumes. A special highlight is the consumption of chocolate pots at the end of the day.
