The 100 main Feasts, Festivals, Fairs, Events in Friuli Venezia Giulia region

  In FVG, the region with thousand churches, every village, every working category, every cultural club is naturally inclined to check the own identity and to enhance the own activity once in the year with a party that everybody may go to.
  Then, almost every weekend for the whole year the tourist has the chance to live a very special event, both traditional and recently created but however anchored to the territory , from the bonfires and historical shows of the Epifany to the Mysteries of Easter until the cheerfulness of the country festivals in summer, to the market shows of produce in autumn, to the cribs in December.

  The over 400 typical events that yearly happen in the region are listed, Zone by Zone, in the 20 chapters of the section ZONES and LOCALITIES when only the 100 more important of it, on typology or dimension, are also identifiable, in chronological order, in the great Events’ Calendar of this page, but not more than one of the events with the same subject.
