    • Estavayer-le-Lac

The street jazz festival will amaze any music lover. Saxophone, trumpet, trombone, clarinet, piano and many other instruments will rhythm these 3 days. The festivities will take place in the historic centre of Estavayer-le-Lac. Free concerts outside and near restaurants will liven up the medieval streets. It is the occasion to enjoy a good meal on the terraces and to enjoy one or more jazz concerts.

On Saturday from 5pm will take place The Swing Parade. To the sounds of the Marching Bands, street bands and other singers, groups of dancers will dance to the rhythms of Lindy Hop, Country or Swing dance. This summer carnival is a joyous parade that will start from the Place du Midi, to cross the whole downtown and finish its journey on the Place de Chenaux.
