Festivals, holidays, traditions, and other events in Capri
The festival of Capri's patron saint San Costanzo traditionally opens with an all-out procession behind a silver reliquary bust of the saint (people stand on their balconies and strew flower petals on the bust as it passes) on May 14, with a repeat procession from Marina Grande up to Capri on May 16 (this date may vary), and there are concerts and other community-sponsored events all week.
Anacapri throws its own version to honor St. Antonio di Padova on June 13.
The first week of January, folklore groups perform on the main piazzas of Capri and Anacapri.
The Villa Axel Munthe hosts free "sunset concerts" June to August Fridays at 7:45pm (tel. +39-081-764-0737).
