Ladin Carnival

The Ladins are an admirable small population in the north of Italy and much of you won't know that much about them. From mid-January to mid-February you'll have a special occasion to immerse in their unique culture. During the Ladin Carnival the Fassa Valley presents itself from its best side.

The traditional Carnival celebrations go back a long way here and the old characters have already attained cult status. In a small village not far from Canazei you can attend the famous "Mascheredès", which have their origins in this town. The plays in Ladin language are performed by amateur actors, which are adorned with colorful costumes, wooden masks and cow bells.

Making a great din, the masked men and a large number of spectators march through the streets of the quaint villages. For almost a whole month you'll encounter many carnival events in the local villages. Countless parades, theater performances, masked balls and even bigger festivals will take place in this period.

As you see, in the Fassa Valley there's much to do during the carnival season. Aside the colorful celebrations, however, a pure idyll in gorgeous snowy landscapes is awaiting you. This nature is ideal for hiking, tobogganing, cross-country and downhill skiing. Be part of the Ladin Carnival and experience a unique pleasure in indescribable places!
