San Gimignano festivals ★★

Festivals, holidays, traditions, and other events in San Gimignano

The citizens dress up in elaborate masks and costumes for a Carnival parade just before Lent (late Jan or early Feb).

Sangimignanese Summer has, since 1924, brought some lightweight culture to town on the last weekend in July, with open-air opera recitals, classical concerts, and film screenings in the ruins of the Rocca fortress.

The third weekend in June, the town goes full-medieval with a Ferie delle Messi harvest festival, with archery contests and falconry demonstrations in the Rocca park, blacksmiths on the streets, and a costumed procession through town.
