There are many traditional festivals and celebrations that take place each year on Giglio Island and the Gigliese organise them with enthusiasm and value group participation.
Apart from festivals and summer concerts taking place on different dates every year (we suggest you consult online), the most important Saint's events are:
SAN LORENZO: Celebrated at Giglio Porto on August 10;
SAN ROCCO: Celebrated at Giglio Campese on August 16;
SAN MAMILIANO: Celebrated at Giglio Castello on 15 September.
These events are accompanied by pyrotechnic shows, traditional music, dances, traditional food, speed racing on rowing boats or on the backs of donkeys!
