August 2022 Events in Lazise


The events for August 2022 in Lazise: fireworks, the Festa dell’Ospite, and Cuccagna del Cadenon.

Fireworks, the Festa dell’Ospite, and Cuccagna del Cadenon are the highlights of the 2022 August events in Lazise.

As per tradition, the Festa dell’Ospite will involve all of Lazise from 26 to 28 August with parades in historical costumes, music, markets, and stands offering food and wine. The main attraction at these celebrations will be the Cuccagna del Cadenon, where each local neighborhood, or "contrada", in Lazise competes to win the "Palo della Cuccagna". With the pole liberally covered in grease and suspended over the waters of the lake at Porto Vecchio, the Cadenon is crossed by teams competing to reach the flag at the other end. The result is an exciting combination of maneuvers, acrobatics, and, inevitably, spectacular splashes.
The celebrations conclude with spectacular fireworks on the lake.

Those who love fireworks will also enjoy a fantastic evening on 7 August, when fabulous fireworks celebrate the "Antica Sagra della Madonna della Neve" in Colà near Lazise. Before the fireworks, it is a custom to dine on "Anara col pien", stuffed roast duck, the festival's traditional dish.

The August 2022 program of events in Lazise continues throughout the month: every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening you can enjoy live music in the squares. The concerts take place in Piazza Partenio, Piazzetta delle Beccherie, and at the Port of Pacengo. Meanwhile, every Thursday evening the "Mercatino Exclusive Handmade in Italy" takes place on the Marconi lakefront, which hosts a colorful assembly of stalls full of creative artisanship.

You can still find us in central Lazise overlooking Lake Garda, just a 6-minute walk from the historic center and the heart of the August 2022 Lazise events. We'll be waiting for you!
