Our prestigious lake will once again shine with a thousand lights on Saturday 6 August after an absence of two years for the Lake Annecy Festival, a not-to-be-missed annual event in Haute-Savoie!
Let yourself be carried away on a musical and pyrotechnical journey with an absolute symbiosis of music, lights and water jets, as well as a ballet of 300 drones, a major new feature in 2022, which will allow you to take flight for a magical and unique 70-minute show...
Selected by a jury of the City of Annecy, the Pyroemotions and Art et feux fireworks companies will be piloting this edition under the theme "Histoire d'eaux" (Story of water), honouring water in all its states and conditions. The fireworks, which represent 3.5 tons of powder, are fired from 74 pontoons installed in the bay of Annecy. More than 200,000 spectators will participate in this event of wonder. The magnificent poster, created by Clément Barbé and inspired by Lake Annecy's emblem, invites us to contemplate. This edition is committed to eco-responsibility in favour of the environment and new technologies will be used to reduce smoke emissions and metal products. This show will be a first in France. The Casino Impérial
is proud to have been a key partner of the event for many years.
At the beginning of August, the bay of Albigny will become the enchanting setting for the largest fireworks show in Europe! For this occasion, the terraces of the Impérial Palace restaurants will offer a special menu and a cocktail reception, providing the opportunity to experience this unique show from one of the most beautiful spots on Lake Annecy. Also take advantage of our "Lake Festival" stay offer to combine a summer escape in a charming hotel with a poetic evening...
The event first appeared during the great "Venetian" festival given in 1860 in honour of Napoleon's arrival and the attachment of Savoy to France, and has triumphed and evolved over time to offer its audience a majestic escape in the heart of the city.
Tickets for the festival can be purchased online or at the Bonlieu centre from 20 June.
