If you are an enthusiast of fine food, art or sport we have something for you : plenty of events dedicated to the exploration of these areas will be organised from the 2nd of June at the Garda Lake
Summer is now on the way and with the beginning of the summer any opportunity to take a break from the daily routine should be taken. Here we have a selection of events that you should not miss in June.
Food and wine events at Garda Lake :
June begins with one of the most important events of rosé wine in Italy, it takes place right here, in Moniga del Garda. Inside the beautiful castle of Monica del Garda (located only 1km away from our Lodge overlooking the Garda Lake), you will be able to meet 160 winemakers coming from every part of Italy and taste more than 200 displayed labels. The castle will be decorated in pink from the 1st to the 3rd of June, so don’t sleep on it!
Palio del chiarettoant
On the opposite bank of the Lake, in front of Moniga, another event will take place. Dedicated to the local food and gastronomy, the 14th edition of the event “Palio del chiaretto” will be represented with the colour pink evident throughout all the city of Bardolino in the first weekend of June. This city located on the venetian side of the Garda Lake is the place where the famous DOC wine is bottled. Next to the wine production you can also find pyrotechnic shows, musical events and sport competitions (a special attention should be given to the Dragon-shaped boats national race because it’s a newsworthy event).
From the 1st to the 3rd of June, the square Aldo Moro in Manerba del Garda will be crowded by italian’s best food trucks. They will fill up the city with all the street food needed to embrace the summer in the best way possible. By their side, concerts, dj sets and shows for all ages will take place, a good way to entertain everybody from the kids to the adults as there is always something to do. From the 29th of June the tasty trucks will move forward to Padenghe sul Garda, surrounded by the awesome natural landscape of Parco Vaso Rì.
Music and cultural events in June:
Music and culture fans will also find excellent opportunities to add even more value to their stay at Garda Lake : in fact in June, every evening the area will be lit up with events that vary from concerts and gigs to art exhibitions.
On the 17th of June, Puegnago del Garda and the cultural association SinErgetica will host Fusion Arts, this year will be the fifth edition of the art festival. In the stunning landscape of Villa Galnica the cultural association will inaugurate the “CONFINI” project, there you will be able to see the exhibition – and the award ceremony – of a large number of projects created by local artists and non artists. The participants will also be able to enjoy poetry performances and musical entertainment during the entire event.
Classic music in Sant’Antonio
With its first appointment being held in may, the cultural review, most appreciated by music enthusiasts in and around Lonato del Garda presents three events in June. The festival aims to enhance the awesome Sant’Antonio Abate’s church and its surroundings through several high quality music shows which allow the audience to rediscover – and remember – their love for classical music. The dates are set for the 3rd of June with “Trio Kronos” (trio for violin, cello and piano.), the 1oth of June with the “Orchestra a Plettro” (string orchestra) from the city of Brescia’s Conservatory, while Marino Benedetti’s “quartetto d’archi di Milano” (string quartet) closes the event on the 17th of June.
Festival Suoni e Sapori del Garda 2018
Also present is the 6th edition of the famous itinerant sacred music festival which began in the past may. This year’s concept can be literally translated as “great music on the water and in places of the spirit”. Like the previous editions this festival consists of a series of shows that takes place in Garda Lake’s churches, offering concerts, food tasting and guided tours of the places. This event will start at Gavarso on saturday the 2nd, Gardone Riviera on both saturday the 9th and the 30th, while on friday the 15th it will be set at Toscolano Maderno.
Still at Toscolano Maderno, this time a little bit more far away from the lake, the dismissed paper district stands on the riverbanks of the Toscolano river, which was exploited for paper production in the ‘400. When the factories closed the production the nature took over on the buildings, but in 2007, after two years of works, the Paper Museum opened its doors, you can reach it after a relaxing walk through the woods. The “Di Acqua e di Carta” (of water and paper) opening exhibition is set for the 2nd of June, while the 29th the museum will host some video installations by the students of the Munich’s Ludwig-Maximilian University.
June’s sports events at Garda Lake:
Holidays at Garda Lake are not only about food, culture and relaxation: if you are a sports lover you’ll be settled with a vast offer of sport events where “challenge yourself” is the keyword, while if you just want to chill out you can always attend the great parties that follow the competitions!
Italy’s most participated Triathlon comes to its 35th edition. Last year 2000 athletes have competed in the three sporting disciplines (running, biking and swimming) while their families were cheering and following the event from the stands or the giant screen. This year’s competition will take place on the 16th of june and, as always, a big party with pasta, fruits and sweets for everyone will follow the prize-giving ceremony.
8° Pro-Aido Kayak Garda Tour
