The local associations and wineries arrange tasting itineraries on the lakefront and at Parco Carrara Bottagisio to allow visitors to taste the various Bardolino versions, from Classico and Superiore to Chiaretto.To fully enjoy the wine, you can visit the food stands and try local food and other recipes on the lake shore.
The numerous music events add a feeling of glee to the festival: singers and bands perform all musical genres at Parco Carrara Bottagisio and the port to make everyone dance! On the other hand it’s time for shopping at lungolago Mirabello, with dozens of stores and brands from all over the country.
Borgo Garibaldi holds “Il cortile delle arti e dei mestieri”, with the participation of numerous companies representing the quality of the Italian creativity and handcraft. The main symbol of the festival is the big barrel distributing grape juice in Piazza Catullo. It is six meters high and 4 meters wide.
