Tulip Festival

We'd like to thank you for your support during the bulb sale for the 2024 Tulip Festival. Without your help, we wouldn't have been able to achieve all that we have.  

We look forward to seeing you from July to October for the 2024 Dahlia Festival!

The Fête de la Tulipe 2024 took place from 29 March to 12 May under the theme ‘The countries of the world’.

We would like to thank you for your support during the 2024 Tulip Festival. Without your help, we would not have been able to achieve all that we did.  

The new programme for the 2025 Tulip Festival will arrive a few weeks before the Festival. 

Every year in spring, the town of Morges dresses up its most beautiful colours for the Tulip Festival, with more than 140,000 flowers and around 350 varieties of tulips. This magnificent festival is organised by the Morges Fleur du Léman association, which also organises the Dahlia Festival  every year, from July to October.

Bulbs planting

Find out how the Tulip Festival bulbs are planted

In January of the previous year of each Tulip Festival, the gardeners of the City of Morges draw up the plans for the beds between January and March, taking into account the flowering period of the varieties present in the same bed, so that it is homogeneous and successful.

Competition for the design of flowerbeds: as part of a 2nd year course, the landscape gardening, horticulture and nursery apprentices of the Morges vocational training centre must each design a tulip bed. From the 100 creations of the apprentices, a jury selects a certain number of beds which will then be planted in the Parc de l'Indépendance. Two beds are also designed and planted by young people from Le Repuis and by employees of the Lavigny garden workshop, two associations for young people in difficulty or with disabilities.

April, during the festival: the City's employees study the beds to see if the compositions and assemblages they have created are a success or not. Each year, around 200 new varieties are chosen to present new flowers to visitors.

September-October of each year: the city gardeners start planting the tulip bulbs. First, they lay out the beds according to the plans. Then they remove the grass, plough the soil and level the beds. The bulbs are first placed with the future stem upwards and then buried to a depth of about three times the size of the bulb. Schools come to help the gardeners during the planting of the bulbs, so that they can learn about this exciting job.

Labels & Awards


Launched in 2022, the VAUD AMBASSADEUR community brings together Vaud-based businesses, producers and entrepreneurs. Its ambition? To create a dynamic of encounters and development opportunities in order to generate unprecedented synergies.

Labelled according to 23 criteria, these institutions shine together and proudly display the colours of the VAUD brand. They share common values that embody Vaud's excellence and contribute to the canton's identity and reputation.

The Morges Fleur du Léman association was awarded the VAUD AMBASSADEUR label in September 2023 for its two flower shows.


The "World Tulip Society" is an association whose aim is to bring together all those involved with the tulip in parks and festivals around the world, as well as distributors and artists who have taken the flower as their model.

Every two years, the members of this association gather at the World Tulip Summit. This summit is an opportunity to discuss and celebrate the tulip and its history, and to forge links between the various players involved in the tulip theme.

The Morges Tulip Festival has been awarded the 2019 World Tulip Destination Worth Travelling For.


Intangible heritage - or living traditions - encompasses oral traditions, customs, festivals and the skills and know-how of craftspeople.

SERAC's Heritage Unit manages the Cantonal Inventory of Intangible Heritage and supervises the work of the Cantonal Commission for Movable and Intangible Heritage (CCPMI). The CCPMI recommends grants from the Cantonal Movable and Intangible Heritage Fund and submits them to the Head of the Department of Culture, Infrastructure and Human Resources (DCIRH) for a decision.

This is a platform offering recommendations and tools for organising an event in a sustainable way.

The current platform was created in 2017 from the merger of CI Manifestation Verte and ecosport.ch. CI Manifestation Verte was founded in 2006 by cantons and towns and focused on the theme of waste. Ecosport.ch was created in 2001 with the sponsorship of the federal offices and Swiss Olympic, and was dedicated to greater sustainability in sports events. Thanks to this merger, the platform has been able to bring together key skills and offer invaluable support to Swiss events of all kinds. The Summit Foundation supports the development of the platform in French-speaking Switzerland.
