THE EVENTS OF CATTOLICA
From the fireworks that colour the sky in the New Year’s Eve passing for the celebrations of Ferragosto, up to the celebration of next St. Sylvester’s night, Cattolica, the Queen seaside resort of the Adriatic coast offers a rich calendar of shows and events that above all during the summer but however in every season propose surprisingly pleasant and relaxing moments.
All the year round, Cattolica give in fact to its guests an incredible schedule of events, shows, entertainment moments, expositions, concerts, fairs, music and in general a lot of occasions to enjoy together fun-time.
The summer represent undoubtedly the period in which the calendar of local happenings reaches the top with a list nearly interrupted of events of every kind what they reach the peak with the celebrations of the “Pink night”.
Just the New Year’s Eve of the summer on Adriatic coast is one of the most meaningful moments of the beautiful Romagna bathing season, when the coast becomes tinked with pink, the color that symbolically unites the coast between Cattolica and Cesenatico in a great sparkling party. Shows, concerts and exhibitions happen uninterruptedly from dawn till dusk for some days, while the pink dominates uncontested in the whole Coast. Beaches, roads, restaurants, shops, hotels and the people of course: everything seems to be wound by an enormous and shining “pink bubble”.
Beyond this extraordinary event the Queen of Adriatic offers indeed a rich program, sometimes even overflowing, of opportunities to have fun, relax and stay together, starting from great events in the Arena among which they detach unmissable concerts of famous singers and musicians of national and international fame.
Approaching to summer, more precisely between the end of April and the beginning of May, it takes place an important show of flowers and ornamental plants that since decades it attracts visitors from every part of Italy.
The flowers’ exhibition is in fact a typical Cattolica’s event that boasts a long and consolidated tradition turning the city for some days into an enchanting hatchery crowded by colored flowers and plants of every kind
Cattolica also distinguishes for a very interesting series of sporting events, both competitive and amateur level. Besides to the many sports activities that are organised on the beach and opened to everybody, there are also a lot of games, races and championships of sailing, tennis, football, cycling, golf, volleyball, athletics, riding, dance, sporting fishing, windsurfing and much more.
There are then also events that in the last years they have received a great appreciation as for example the “Antichi sapori di terra e di mare” Festival, a food and wine exhibition that brought in Cattolica a lot of specialties belonging to other regional italian cookings.
For what about food and events we have absolutely to tell something about the “rustida”, a typical event of Cattolica. Usually organised near the harbour, it consists in the distribution to the people walking by of delicious roast fish, to taste with wine and bread.
The Queen of the coast welcomes also during the whole summer a lot of small local street markets very interesting and full of objects of every kind, sometimes fine and sometimes eccentric but in any case very curious. These street markets are weekly scheduled in many parts of the town and join the usual great market of Saturday morning in which you can find every kind of item at really convenient prices.
In Cattolica, during the Summer there are often also happenings, parties, dancing evenings, beauty contests, festivals, art exhibitions, entertainment for kids and a sparkling show of dancing fountains that you can see each evening in 1st May’s Square.
Spending your holidays in Cattolica you will be so overcome by a lot of events which they will let you enjoy every single day giving a touch of special charm to your evenings on the coast.
But also during the low season, when the summer’s clamours lower and the worldly occasions become less numerous, the queen of Adriatic See will give you intense and exciting moments offering you a calendar of events maybe less rich for what’s about the number, but surely not about quality.
