At Lake Garda, summer is synonymous with fabulous events and plenty of fun. All the main tourist destinations have traditional local festivals, with spectacular fireworks displays to light up the night sky! In summer every place on the lake offers its visitors - adults and children alike - plenty of opportunities for entertainment and relaxation with all kinds of events: exhibitions, cookery shows, concerts, festivals, theatre and much more besides.
At Boffenigo, local happenings are essential for an unforgettable holiday, and that's why this summer 2019 we're recommending the unmissable events taking place near our hotel. So here are our tips for the month of September!
6 September: GARDA ALL'OPERA 2019
In collaboration with the Associazione Albergatori di Garda e Costermano, the little square of Santo Stefano will be enlivened by the music of Mozart, Bizet, Donizetti, Rossini and Verdi, with extracts from everyone's favourite operas. The evening of 6 September is a homage to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Free entry.
6, 7 and 8 September: EUROPEAN BREWERY FESTIVAL
The fourth edition of the Brewery Festival, a great fair of craft beer and wonderful street food, in the splendid surroundings of Albarè di Costermano. In the evenings, the town centre offers the chance to sample the best craft beers, accompanied by a selection of food trucks serving original and appetising street food to suit all tastes. The programme is enriched and completed by live bands and DJ sets on stage. Entry to the event is free.
7 September: WESTBOUND FOR AFRICA
A charity concert raising funds for humanitarian projects in developing countries. This year's tour, "3 Generations for Africa", promises an exciting evening, featuring musicians of different generations, from the very young to the original members of the band. Proceeds will support the Attat hospital in Ethiopia, which has long been assisted by the Associazione Medici dell’Alto Adige per il Mondo. The concert will take place in the Piazza del Municipio in Garda at 21:00.
14 and 15 September: GARDA CLASSIC CAR SHOW
Once again Bardolino is the venue for this event, organised by Benaco Auto Classiche in collaboration with the Fondazione Bardolino Top, which brings dozens of classic cars to Lake Garda, ranging from the 20s to the 70s, with their teams dressed in the appropriate period costumes. From a 1931 Fiat 514 to a 1936 Lancia Augusta, from the legendary 1956 Thunderbird to a 1962 Flaminia, it's a veritable showcase of motoring history, featuring extraordinary vehicles from top marques. Saturday morning begins with an exhibition of the splendid cars in the Carrara Bottagisio park, and in the afternoon, following checks by the officials of the Automotoclub Storico Italiano, the public can vote for their favourite.
