Festivals in Veneto are definitely a typical feature of our area, an opportunity for organised gatherings around a specific theme, which usually involves food and wine or folk customs. The festivals in the Euganean Hills are colourful, with plenty of good food and usually also good music. Organised on a regular basis by the municipality or the Proloco association of the village, every year they attract a large number of tourists who want to taste some typical dishes, always cooked by the grandmothers of the village.
The events in the Euganean Hills provide an excellent opportunity to taste the typical dishes of our areas and visit some ancient picturesque villages, rich in history and culture, passed down from generation to generation. For example, medieval festivals reflect this desire to re-introduce the ancient customs of our ancestors in the form of historical re-enactments, real masked festivals that reproduce the clothes and customs of a period, in an authentic reconstruction of our past, which comes alive and flourishes again for a few days. Musicians, jesters, archers, tarot cards, witches and talismans enliven the main streets of a town, which will enchant you with its processions, parades and interactive shows, where the audience becomes the protagonist and can, for a day, experience something mysterious that comes from the past.
The festivals in Veneto are ideal for any type of public from children to adults. The aim is to have fun and taste the special dishes of our areas for a few days.
