Street Musician Festivals

festival di strada santa sofia 4 JPG The artistic theme of this event is "Shadows and Lights" but there will also be the circus: new, traditional and lots and lots of music. These will be the ingredients of the 21st edition of the busker festival Santa Sofia ..di strada .. in strada”, the first of this month's events with street artists, on schedule from August 12 to 15 in this town just inland from Forli, in the green Romagna-Tuscany Apennines.

This edition will have fire and flames.  In fact, fire will be the star of the festival this year, making up an integral part of many of the shows here. A multi-ethnic, warm, colorful, enchanting and international festival.

Visitors will have the chance to get to know Santa Sofia, a city of good living and good food, as well as see particularly interesting nature sites, such as the forest in Campigna and the artificial lake with the Ridracoli Dam.


Not to be missed is also the very colorful historic annual event of the Ferrara Buskers Festival, the largest international festival dedicated to street art, now in its 25th edition, where sounds and faraway cultures come together in the streets and squares of this charming city.

The curtain will come up on this show on Friday, August 17 with a preview in Comacchio. Then, for nine days, until August 28, Ferrara will host the festival, which will take on a green hue as it does every year with the Progetto Ecofestival, dedicated to making this whole event environmentally friendly and sustainable.
