AUGUST AT THE BEACH

August holidays on the beach? A classic in Emilia-Romagna!
Parties, bonfires on the beach, festivals, and concerts; here are some events organized on the Riviera:

Let’s start from the beaches of Cervia where there is a scheduled music festival, with a tribute to Ennio Morricone together with a program of musical events which will be performed on the beach at dawn.

Concerts at dawn on Sunday are also scheduled on the beach of Lido degli Estensi and Lido delle Nazioni. The day of the 15th of August will then continue with entertainment events and sports competitions, ending with the traditional fireworks display that will color the night of the Ferrara coast.

In Gatteo Mare the mid-August will instead be marked by the notes and the memory of the “King of the smooth“, the great master and musician Raoul Casadei.
On August 15th the Mirko Casadei POPular Folk Orchestra and the Italian singer Enrico Ruggeri will propose to the present public some unexpected versions of the great classics of the smooth under the starry sky of Romagna.
A long night dedicated to the music par excellence that has made the Romagna tradition a ‘global’ phenomenon, a sound that mixes different languages, sources, and citations, mixing folk with the heritage of the cultured scores of the polkas and the mazurkas.

The Ferragosto di San Mauro Mare will instead be a long marathon of events that, starting from Monday 9 August, will enliven the city center with shows, concerts, literary meetings, and markets.
As in tradition, it is scheduled for a concert on the beach at dawn on the 15th as well as the fireworks display that will close the long New Year’s Eve in the San Mauro Summer.

In Rimini, the capital of the Romagna Area, from Thursday 12 to Sunday 15 August 2021 in Piazzale Fellini, you will find Birrimini, the Italian craft beer, and Street Food Festival. The four days in the heart of Marina Centro will host the stands of Italian craft breweries and street food, together with DJ sets and music concerts. Then on Saturday 14 August, the fireworks display at 11.00 pm will enliven the night of mid-August.

Also at dawn, but on August 14, we recommend not to lose in Riccione the music performance of the 2021 revelation band “Coma Cose“.
Returning from their participation in Sanremo Music Festival, the Come Cose duo has been one of the most popular bands on the Italian national scene for some years now, and for the Riccione occasion, they will stage a powerful and emotionally engaging show, with an expanded and unprecedented line-up.
But Riccione will also be the home of the traditional Deejay on Stage, the summer of Italian famous radio station “Radio Deejay” that will bring all the protagonists of the Italian summer hits to the Romagna area.

Looking for Bellaria Igea Marina, here there is a schedule of numerous markets in the streets of the city center; a must for residents and tourists with the opportunity to browse the stalls of handicrafts, tasting some traditional food and wine products.
