Bacchica will bloom again this coming spring. In 2017, from Wednesday June 14th to Sunday June 18th, the City of Lugano is once again organising this festival of wine and popular tradition in Lugano’s centre and along its lakeshore.
Based on the experience of previous years, the Organising Committee has decided to make some changes and bring some innovations to the event that for the fourth time will be held on the shores of Lake Ceresio. Of course, all the traditional appointments of an event that has been consolidating itself year after year, are to be included, certain to meet with an ever growing success and appreciation by the local public and the many tourists that crowd Lugano’s streets during the event. Among these, let us mention the wine-tasting of wines produced in Ticino and the possibility of also getting a taste of and purchasing local gastronomic products and not only. A space, in fact, will also be wholly dedicated to the cuisines from many parts of the world. The five days dedicated to Bacchus will be accompanied by the music of local bands and other musical groups. One of the great highlights of the event will obviously be re-proposed: as tradition has it, a great folkloristic parade will be held along the lakeshore on Sunday June 18th. This year the event’s official opening has been set for Thursday the 19th. The Organising Committee is happy to invite you all as of now, to enjoy a spirit of conviviality in front of a good glass of Ticinese wine.
