Things to do in Geneva for families November


SUNDAY, 11th OF NOVEMBER IS THE LAST DAY OF THE AUTOMNALES.  On Sunday don’t miss the Cosplay salon – featuring Japanese traditions and pop culture.

Palexpo turns into a somewhat bizarre but quite fascinating Aladdin’s Cave of shopper’s delights during the annual Automnales.

If you love shopping, sport, animals, food and new trends, then this 10-day long exposition featuring several shopping experiences in one is definitely worth checking out. It is quite the autumn event for shoppers in Geneva and basically consists of several expos running in parallel. Imagine 60,000 square metres dedicated to shopping – whatever you fancy – bedding, a new kitchen, a swimming pool, toys, food, wine… you’ll find it all at Les Automnales.

Apart from the usual annual exhibitors, there will be several new things to discover this year, including a ‘treasure world’ offering auction sales of different types of products, several new games and activities for children of all ages, a big electric karting track (no loud sounds and no pollution!) and an international cat show and competition – go figure!

Other attractions include the Japanese Cosplay exposition, which was a big hit last year, camping and climbing equipment displays, a big boat show, a display of various types of sport and movement, a dog show, cookery demonstrations, farm animal , a clairvoyance exposition and much more.

FOR PARENTS: There is a halte garderie – nursery to look after and entertain the children while you do your shopping.   Free for a period of 2 hours and CHF20 for 30 minutes after that.
