Venice Carnival 2021
Date(s) - 06/02/2021 - 16/02/2021
One of the Lagoon’s most deeply-rooted traditions, and an opportunity to admire the skills of Venetian artisans, Venice Carnival features a month packed with festive events, fashion shows, travelling plays and masked balls. The entire city is alive with shows, masked parades and music in ‘calli’, squares and palaces: hundreds of Venetians and visitors wander around wearing masks and superb hand-made costumes. A widespread event that lasts for more than two weeks at dozens of different locations. It is much more than a traditional event or a mere tourist attraction; this festival has ancient origins and is associated with the spirit and personality of Venice.
This year the enchantment of the Venice Carnival – from February 6 to 7 and from February 11 to 16, at 5pm – will be brought to your doorstep no matter where you are, thanks to a calendar of virtual events dedicated to its history and traditions: improvisations, disguises, music and entertainment, streamed from Venice-Palazzo Ca’ Vendramin Calergi, home to Venice Casino.
