August 2022 in Lazise: the events

August 2022
Fireworks, Festa dell’Ospite, and Cuccagna del Cadenon: the events of August 2022 in Lazise await you!
 
The traditional August events in Lazise return for the 2022 season to delight visitors from all over Europe as they enjoy a summer holiday on Lake Garda.
 
Let's start with the fireworks, which have a double feature this August 2022 in Lazise and illuminate the shores of the lake with a kaleidoscope of colors.
 
On 7 August from the hills of Colà, just outside Lazise, the fireworks are set off in honor of the Antica Sagra della Madonna della Neve, the highlight event after days of traditional festivity with wine and food stalls offering Arana col pien (stuffed roast duck) a typical specialty for this festival.
 
On 28 August there will be a second fireworks show, this time on the waters of the lake in Lazise, as the closing event for the Festa dell’Ospite which begins on 26 August.
As per tradition, the Festa dell’Ospite takes place over three days (26 - 28 August) with historical processions, music, and craft stalls in the historic center of Lazise, as well as the highly anticipated Cuccagna del Cadenon. This is when teams compete to cross a generously greased pole suspended over the water and grab the coveted flag at the end, resulting in impressive acrobatics and spectacular splashes.
 
Throughout August 2022 in Lazise there are also plenty of other events, one after another, to brighten up everyone's holiday. Live music, markets, and painting exhibitions take place across the squares and the lakefront. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening, there are concerts in Piazza Partenio, Piazzetta delle Beccherie, and at the Port of Pacengo. While every Thursday evening on the Marconi lakefront there is the "Mercatino Exclusive Handmade in Italy" with colorful stalls full of creative artisanal products.
 
Hotel Cangrande is in the historic center of Lazise, a 3-minute walk from the Porto Vecchio and the heart of the Festa dell’Ospite as well as all the other events for August 2022. We'll be waiting for you!
