Lake Garda Events

What to do on Lake Garda

Lake Garda, with its sunny and beautiful scenery, offers many leisure activities and entertainment, including events, all kinds of exhibitions and nightclubs.

In fact, guests who choose Villa Caratti for their summer holidays to enjoy all the comforts of the luxury villa with a pool have the chance to leave the villa and explore the artistic and natural beauty of the surrounding area.

In particular, all the towns overlooking Lake Garda have their own traditional festivals, often linked to their patron saint and also regularly organise fairs for locals and tourists.

The combination of the intense colour of its waters and the events organised in the surrounding area makes Lake Garda - on which Villa Caratti stands - one of the best-loved tourist destinations during the summer holidays.

Lake Garda Fairs: Lonato del Garda’s street market

Every year, round Italy’s largest lake, several festivals and folk markets are organised, where tourists can discover local products such as fruit and vegetables, clothing or antiques. One of Lake Garda’s most famous fairs is the one held in Lonato del Garda, a small town in the Brescia region. This town has a long history as seen in its monuments, including the Cathedral, the Fortress and Drugolo Castle.

Specialising in the wine, tourism and food industries, Lonato del Garda has been hosting an unmissable event since 1996: the Lonato del Garda street market. This year, it takes place on 21st July 2019.
Traditionally, there is an exhibition by antique dealers, collectors and hobbyists on the third Sunday of every month to publicise and promote this picturesque Brescian town. You can spend a day dedicated to art in one the most fascinating towns on Lake Garda.

Lake Garda Shows: Ale and Franz in Gardone Riviera (Romeo and Juliet)

If you are a guest at Villa Caratti, one of the events on Lake Garda not to be missed is on 24th July, in Gardone Riviera at the Vittoriale Amphitheatre. The comic duo Ale and Franz are performing a reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s famous work Romeo and Juliet.

Ale and Franz will be accompanied by another five actors (all men), who will play different characters, including female ones.
The distinctiveness of this show is the rivalry that emerges between the actors, who cannot hide their personal relationships, veering between jealousy and friendship.
Despite everything, however, the story of Romeo and Juliet will prevail.
The comedians manage to tell the troubled love of the two young people and, in one way or another, also excite and move the audience.
If you are planning to spend your holidays in one of the best loved tourist resorts in Italy, Gardone Riviera is one of the absolutely unmissable shows on Lake Garda.

Desenzano White Nights

The events on Lake Garda come one after the other and from 3rd July to 28th August 2019 summer Wednesdays are dedicated to the White Nights in Desenzano: a regular event in the Brescian town.

With a total of ten dates (four each in July and August and two in September), the white nights in Desenzano - promoted by the municipality - feature cultural events and entertainment during the night, with craft markets and night shopping in stores open for the occasion.

Markets and live music will fill the squares of Desenzano, including the Duomo, Piazza Matteotti and Piazza Malvezzi, but also in the town’s central streets with several "islands" dedicated to music and dancing.
