Major Events going on at Lake Garda
There are always lots of events going on around the lake, especially during the summer months. Are you going to Lake Garda this month? Check out these great events for August, and make sure you get to them all!
This starts in June and goes through the summer. It's a singing competition for amateur singers, and the show travels to various towns around the lake. Included in the show are singers, dancers, comics, a beauty contest, body painting, and displays with local produce. It goes on throughout the day into the evening. Here's where and when they are:
4-5 August: Garda, 7-8 August: Malcesine, 10-11 August: Limone sul Garda, 13-14 August: Bardolino, 17-18 August: Cavaion Veronese, 22-23 August: Desenzano del Garda, 5th September: The Final at Toscolano Maderno.
Starting in June, this goes through until mid August. "Bisse", which are venetian-style, long and thin boats, compete in this traditional race for the "Flag of the Lake" prize. This is a colourful and exciting event, with four people on each boat standing up (like gondoliers) rowing alternately. At 3pm there is a photos and paintings exhibition. At 7pm there is a parade, followed by the start of the race.
4th August: SalÚ
This is a festival that goes on all summer at Gardone Riviera, at the Vittoriale Theater (an outdoors arena).
