"Parc de l'Indépendance" :
The "Parc de l'Indépendance" is open but the directives of the State Council on measures to protect the population against COVID-19 are in force.

Created to mark the 50th anniversary of the Vaud Horticultural Society in 1971, the Tulip Festival continues to delight the 100,000 annual visitors from Switzerland and abroad.

The festival takes place from late March to mid-May in the Parc de l'Indépendance, located on the shores of Lake Geneva, between the Château de Morges and the river La Morges. The Parc de l'Indépendance offers, in all seasons, a magnificent green setting and presents 50 varieties of trees such as impressive chestnut trees dating from 1750 or giant sequoias. It is only a few metres from the historic city centre, the landing stage, restaurants and shops.

To celebrate this 50th edition, a statue specially made for the event by the artist Leo Orta, in collaboration with the Dutch company gutundgut, will be inaugurated in the Parc de l'Indépendance.
This year, the Netherlands is the guest of honour, with an Orange Day on Saturday 25th April.
