However, the rest of the country and across the border remains open, so take advantage! Vaud and Neuchâtel will have their chance soon for Jeûne Fédéral (Monday, 17 September)! Click here for holiday calendar.

Why not take advantage on Thursday (Jeûne Genevois) and check out these suggestions? And don't forget to eat the traditional plum pie (tarte aux pruneaux)!

** CHATEAU DE PRANGINS EXHIBITION: CHINTZ: HOW A FABRIC CHANGED THE WORLD!
Exhibit until 14 October 2018 (closed Mondays)
Prangins, VD
In the 17th and 18th centuries, a passion for the printed cotton fabric known as chintz sweeps across Europe. This unprecedented craze for a material and its exotic motifs will influence society, the economy and fashion for almost two centuries. Unrelated to this, Jazz au Peuple takes place evenings in Prangins as well on 7-8 September. Click here for more information.

** MUSEUM D'HISTOIRE NATURELLE: FOURMIS LA GRANDE EXPOSITION
Exhibit until 6 January 2019

THE COLOR RUN
Sunday, 9 September 2018
Lausanne, VD
The aim is more about having the time of your life in this un-timed event in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: Wear white at the starting line; Finish plastered in color! Click here for more information.
