In 1971 there was a first exhibition of flower during the spring in the “Parc de l’Indépendance” for the fiftieth birthday of the society of horticulture from Vaud, Geneva lake section. 100’000 onions of tulips, narcissus, hyacinth and muscaris were planted to grow in the “Parc de l’Indépendance”. Since this day this tradition still happens with the name of “Tulip Festival”.

The name of the « Parc de l’Indépendance » results from the Centenary of the end of the oppression of the Canton of Vaud by the regime of reeves of Bern which took place on January 24th, 1898 There we can see a monument celebrating the memory of the three patriots: Cart, Muret and Monod. The “Parc de l’Indépendance” is one of the most beautiful parks in the Lake Geneva region. There are about fifty varieties of trees from every continent
