Pink Night 2018

Pink Night 2018 is back for its 13th edition, Friday, July 6, with many events all weekend long, all along the 130 kilometers of the Adriatic Riviera between Comacchio and Pesaro.


The spirit, identity, the strength of an event capable of bringing together different generations and heterogenous “tribes” represents a place dedicated to hospitality and loved for its passion, warmth and the spontaneity of its people and the importance of spending time together.


And this year Pink Night will be spent with Alvaro Soler, Nina Zilli, Maria Antonietta, Noemi, Gemelli Diversi, Paola Turci, Annalisa, Giusy Ferreri, Caparezza and many others.


Pink Night is not just pink by name but it is pink everywhere, on the streets and in the squares with decorations and lights, among people with pink clothes and accessories, and among bars and restaurants with pink menus and pink piadina (they’re edible!) – so a great “pink tide” that goes from the beach into the heart of the cities of the Romagna Riviera and into Le Marche.

From sunset on Friday, July 6 and for the whole weekend, even all the symbolic places (from Trepponti in Comacchio to the Castle in Gradara, passing through the Grand Hotel and Tiberus’s Bridge in Rimini, the skyscraper in Cesenatico and the Salt Warehouses in Cervia) will be lit up with pink lights, and museums, bars and restaurants, bathing establishments and hotels will be ready to stay up until the wee hours of the night.
