Valdobbiadenese Carnival

From 21 February 2009 to 22 February 2009

The Valdobbiadenese carnival is an event which continues to grow throughout the years, an event characterised by tradition and arts and crafts. Held in the central town square and outlying streets it offers a weekend which anticipates the celebration of spring, bringing with it one of the flavours and aromas of the Veneto: Prosecco, the famous white wine typical of the region. The two days of festivities include allegorical floats, entertainment from comedians, acrobats and musicians, local food and wine and much more, celebrating the traditions of the area: a perfect combination of past and present, of folklore and new fashions. Opening the carnival will be a gaily-decorated fleet of vintage Vespa scooters, thanks to the collaboration of the Vespa Club of Valdobbiadene. Young musicians will alternate with traditional local bands, firework displays will illuminate the night skies, and the Sunday sees an ice-skating competition. All these and more surprises await you on your visit to Valdobbiadene. Free entrance.
