Festivals & Events

The island hosts a feast of festivals and events throughout the year from colourful carnivals to religious processions and is your chance to experience a piece of true Sardinia.

Many of the island's festivals have been ongoing for centuries and reveal a lot about the Sardinian people and their history. The magnificent costumes and jewellery that the women wear highlight the handicrafts of the island.

Festivals in Sardinia often have a religious theme but there are a plethora of others that celebrate annual events including the fish festival in July where you can sample fried fish or the International Jazz festival in August, one of the most important festivals in Sardinia. We have compiled a list of the main festivals and events so if you are lucky enough to be in Sardinia when one is on, you have no excuse to miss it!
