Events for your spring long weekends
Cultural events, sport, country fairs, festivals and wine tastings
Between April and the beginning of May Trentino will host numerous events to celebrate the spring holidays with style. Besides the festivals dedicated to blossoms and flowers, for which the Val di Non is particularly famous, you can’t miss the Chocomusic festival in Riva del Garda from 19-22 April, perfectly timed for the Easter with the fine quality chocolate on offer.
For those who prefer cultural events, there’s the Trento Film Festival in Trento city from April 27th to May 5th, an annual event dedicated to film and cinema centred around mountains and exploration.
If you wish to acquire further knowledge of Trentino wines, all you have to do in April is pay a visit to the Valle dei Laghi for the DiVin Nosiola festival, an event celebrating the Nosiola vine and the raisin wine Vino Santo. You can also take part in the classic DivinNosiola EcoRunning event, a unique spring marathon that takes runners along lakes and through vineyards, wine cellars and typical hamlets.
If you’re a sports enthusiast, your destination must surely be Lake Garda, which hosts the renowned Bike Festival from 3-5 May 2019. This spectacular event marks the opening of the bicycle season and welcomes over 45,000 visitors and 3,000 participants!
