The event will be held in Cernobbio from 17 to 19 September 2021, in a location rich in history and charm, enriched for the occasion by elegant floral decorations. La Festa del Borgo discovers wine and renews tradition.
From September 17 to 19, 2021 in Cernobbio returns the Feast of the Village, one of the events of the last century more dear to the inhabitants of Cernobbio, reproposed by the municipal administration from 2018, to recreate the same atmosphere, but in a more current and offer a moment of celebration for the whole population. The event, which takes place in conjunction with a religious festival dear to cernobbiesi, that of Our Lady of Sorrows, aims to offer citizens and visitors the opportunity to rediscover alleys and glimpses of the country in an atmosphere of conviviality and authentic sharing, albeit in compliance with the indications for the containment of the pandemic from Covid-19. On the program: music, tastings, sports and charitable initiatives, literary meetings, masterclasses, markets with floral and nursery themes, horticultural and food and wine: very diverse proposals, a bit 'for all tastes!
The Festa del Borgo that as in the previous editions will propose fascinating floral decorations in the alleys of the center and on the ASF Bus Garden present on the Riva, this year will also host the first edition of the Wicket Wine Festival: the Wine Festival organized in collaboration with the startup of Como Wicket Events and the Association of Tourism and Commerce of Cernobbio.
The Wicket Wine Festival fits into the framework of the Festa del Borgo organizing what is in effect a traveling festival: there will be many wineries in attendance offering tastings at the stands on the lakefront or at the restaurants in Cernobbio adhering to the initiative.
Tickets, which can be purchased online at https://festival.wicketevents.com/ticket or at the cash desks available on site, will include the glass goblet, the goblet holder pocket and tasting tokens to spend at the various stands and restaurants. Tokens can be freely used in the whole area of the event, with the exception of burgundy tokens, which can be spent only in the specific area of Via V Giornate.
Wicket Events, in fact, was created as a digital ticketing solution based on blockchain to defeat the secondary market and eliminate any kind of fraud: tickets are impossible to change thanks to the underlying technology and, most importantly, they can only be resold within the Wicket application at the price initially paid.
The mayor of Cernobbio, Matteo Monti: "We are pleased to re-propose after the forced interruption of last year, an event that is very dear to me because it has its roots in tradition and was born in the historic center of Cernobbio, the so-called "Borgo".
Thanks to the Associazione Turismo e Commercio Cernobbio and to the start-up Wicket Events, this year the festival will last three days and will "trespass" also towards Via V Giornate and up to Villa Bernasconi. I thank therefore all those who have collaborated for the good success of this event and I wish to who will participate to pass moments of serene festivity and to be again our guests in the future demonstrations".
