Estavayer-le-Lac hosts its Rose Festival every other year.
The medieval town is dressed in roses during a whole weekend!
12 temporary rose beds and different animations and conferences about roses are at the heart of the event. The paved streets and the castle's courtyard come alive with concerts and a market, which sells roses and derived products (candles, food, soap, perfume). Different competitions allow the visitors to showcase their talents for drawings or flower beds.
