Going to Elba when there are special events, village festivals or local festivities will help make your holiday even better, showing you a different island from the one you know of sea and beaches: an island whose origins are to be found in stories of past generations and Medieval beliefs, an island made of music, dances, customs, colours and sounds.
So why not choose the dates of your holiday exactly when there are the yearly celebrations, so that you can get to know a different Elba?
If you love walking why not take advantage of the Walking Festival that takes place in Spring!: a whole month of free, guided excursions along the ancient paths in Elba; or for those who fancy going to Elba in Autumn, there are gastronomic feasts like the Grape Festival, and the Chestnut Festival that take place in small, hillside towns. During the summer, on the other hand, there is something for everyone: fancy dress celebrations like the beautiful commemoration of the lovers' legend on July 14th, or the music festival that has reached international fame.
Infoelba advice: our website also includes Elba Eventi. here you will find all the exhibitions, concerts, village festivals, shows and cinema programmes: there is always something to do in Elba!
Further along you will find all the major events that for years, sometimes for centuries, have brought ancient local traditions back to life, making both locals and tourists feel part of it all.
