The Venetian Carnival is one of the most well known events of the carnival season in Europe and ranks with Rio De Janero’s fame on the world stage. The dates vary every year depending on when Easter falls, but generally for two weeks in February and sometimes March the whole city comes alive with the centuries old tradition color, masks, music, mayhem, costumes and live performances. People travel from all over Europe to be part of this stunning event while visitors from further abroad are often charmed by the costumes, colors and music.
The city is also home to the Venice Film Festival and numerous sailing events and regattas throughout the year.
