Patronal feast of St Vigilius

Moena celebrates for four days the patron saint of the village, San Vigilio, who also gives his name to the parish church

On the occasion of the 170th anniversary of its foundation, from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 June, the Municipal Band of Moena organises a weekend of celebrations culminating with the official celebration of the patron saint on Wednesday 26 June. The San Vigilio festival is an event that is deeply felt by the people of Moena and requires considerable commitment on the part of musicians and volunteers from the various cultural associations, who are involved in organising the marquee set up in "Navalge" and open during the four days. The festival not only pays homage to the town's patron saint, but also celebrates the history of the band and gastronomic traditions, as it will be possible to taste the best typical specialities. During the weekend, there will be concerts and parades intertwined with the two days of "Monc de Pèsc - Mountains of Peace" dedicated to the memory of the Great War in Val di Fassa.
