The “Lonato Festival 2016” returns to the Visconti castle of Lonato del Garda. The focus of the event, held from 4 to 7 August 2016, is on the world of circus.
The castle of Lonato del Garda west of Lake Garda hosts the “Lonato Festival” from Thursday, 4 to Sunday, 7 August 2016. The busker festival features music, exhibitions and shows by artists from all over the world. This year focuses on the circus, and a gala is dedicated to Moira Orfei, the queen of the Italian circus, a year after her death. This is why the festival focuses on the circus rather than different cultures this year. The event boasts a juggling workshop for children and tango and country music dance evenings. There will also be ethnic style relax areas, the Pangea one world market and food stalls with vegan and traditional dishes. The festival is held from 6 pm to 12 am. The entrance ticket price is 8 euros and 2 euros for children under 12 years of age.
