Project details

This year, the 17th annual Geneva Music Festival will take place June 22nd through 24th, 2007. The "Village of Associations" will host 50 booths within the Music Festival area, held by non-profit organizations. Each year, food and refreshment booths are set up for the numerous visitors attending the Festival. The purpose of the organizations must be to promote cultural, social, educational, humanitarian or environment causes.
