The "Nesis" Band at Summer Music Festival

The "Nesis" Band at Summer Music Festival

Karen Brubaker

Bergamo and the local towns have festivals all year round depending on the time and the occasion. See a medieval castle in Urgnano come to life with folklore, costumes, scenes, music and food from long ago. See a puppet show, dancing, a fountain light show or fireworks over a lake.

Almè - 10 kilometers north of Bergamo - has a festival every year around May 28 to June 25 and then the Saint Patron Town festival is around the end of August.

You have to check and see who the Saint Patron of each town is in Italy and find out when they have their big celebration in the town. And then according to the town the celebration is carried out in a different way - a procession with the statue of the Saint accompanied by huge candles and sometimes people dressed up in special costumes according to the local custom. The church may be covered with lights at night, food served and performances included. If there is a lake or a river it could be filled with candles or boats covered in lights. Fireworks can mysteriously come out of the river and shoot into the sky. (Near south of Lecco on the river). So you see! The sky's the limit!
