Appointments unique in the World
What's on in Winter?
Val di Fiemme rallies an army of volunteers for the sports events organized in the valley. For people coming from big cities is hard to believe that a community can put so much effort in a common game, but the inhabitants of Fiemme have the voluntary work and solidarity in their blood. The three editions of Nordic World Ski Championships (1991, 2003, 2013) and the legendary Marcialonga are great proofs of what they are able to achieve – every edition of Marcialonga is welcomed in an overwhelming wave of enthusiasm.
Besides housing the FIS Nordic Combined World Cup races, Fiemme is the final stage of the thrilling Tour de Ski that gets the best cross country athletes of the world to climb up the slope Olimpia at Alpe Cermis to reach the finishing line.
Another international race is dedicated to the young promises of cross country skiing - “Skiri Trophy XCountry”.
Fiemme is also the valley of one hundred “Cribs of Tesero” (exhibited in the courtyards, tiny streets and farms of the village at Christmas time) and of the suggestive commemoration of the ancient “Witch Trials”.
In March, the ski slopes turn into white stage for black music, thanks to the original festival “Dolomiti Ski Jazz”.
Last but not least, one of the oldest and colourful parties of Trentino is the “Carnevale dei Matoci” in Valfloriana, where people goof off, eat and laugh.
What's on in Summer?
Summer is the theatre of concerts at high altitude “The Sounds of the Dolomites” and at the art park “RespirArt Pampeago”. Then the “Herbs, Flowers and Tastes Week”, “Family Weeks - Fantabosco”, “Trentino Danza”, historical commemorations “Le Corti di Tesero”, “Catanaoc ‘n festa” and “San Martino Fires”.
Summer is also the time of two-wheel competitions, like “Marcialonga Cycling” and “Vecia Ferovia de Fiemme”. No bike? Race by foot (and uphill!) at the skyrunning races “Stava Skyrace” and “Latemar Vertical km”.
Live noble emotions during the “Desmontegada di Cavalese”, the parade of adorned goats, and the “Desmontegada di Predazzo”, the parade of cows and their calves.
