Printemps Carougeois cultural festival on now

Mid Morning Mix // Community// Events// Explore Switzerland// Entertainment// Art & Culture // May 8, 2019


Printemps Carougeois: a cultural festival with a natural theme! 

Cecilia Campeas, Communications Manager at the Ville de Carouge, and artist Chris Drury join us in the WRS studio to talk about the cultural offerings at Printemps Carougeois across the 11 day programme. 



Printemps Carougeois takes place between the 9-19 May 2019. This year, Mother Nature is at the heart of the programme, which provides plenty of opportunity to see, taste, listen, explore, participate and do.


The theme is 'nature' and brings together art, film, food, music and dance events in one lush programme. 

Don't forget to grab your "Botanique Dream" cocktail during the festival - a themed mocktail - at the Chat Noir. It's completely free with any purchased festival ticket. 



Printemps Carougeois gives the opportunity for local artists to express themselves alongside world famous international artists. The rich artistic programme follows natural themes, using natural materials.
