Redeemer Festival Italy

Sigfus Sigmundsson Venice-Festa del Redentore

When & Where The Redeemer Festival Italy is a religious Festival which takes place in Venice, Italy. It usually takes place around the third weekend of July.

What to Expect This is Venices favourite festival. Even in the Regatta season this is the outright winner. The entire town loads onto their boats and celebrates , basking in St. Marks Basin with the Summer Sun beating down. As the sun sets the bars come alive and a firework display fills the skies. The following day there is a procession at Guidecca Island in the Redentore- try the temporary bridge made of boats, this is followed by a typical Venetian Regatta.
