La Bacchica – Wine Festival Lugano


until the 20th September 2015 

Bacchica’s main goal is that of offering events connected to culture, the cantonal and national territory, promoting activities ranging from arts and crafts, gastronomy all the way to Ticinese and Swiss cultural activities. And all this in front of a good glass of wine, produced with passion and skill by the wine growers of our Canton.

Bacchica is offering a series of events during the four day event dedicated to Bacchus. There’s the election of Miss Bacchica, the appointment with the « Mazza in Piazza » an event to see close up how a hand-made sausage is produced; there’s also a children’s corner with fun and games organized by children education experts and the presence of several bands and folk groups playing in different squares hosting the event. You’ll also have the opportunity of attending Sunday mass, watching grape pressing and lot’s more.

Special boat trips have been arranged on Lake Ceresio, an exhibition of ancient farm tools in collaboration with the Stabio museum will also be held and there will be an area devoted to “bocce” (bowls), the launching of the stone and Swiss wrestling.

The event’s main focus will be Sunday’s great folkloristic parade taking place along Lugano’s Lakeshore and the wine tasting activity planned for Saturday afternoon. Bacchica also proposes a lunch for the elderly and a moment of entertainment for the children hospitalized in Lugano’s Ospedale Civico, organised in collaboration with a group of experts.
