Rome Festivals Overview

New Year's Eve at Piazza del Popolo 2015 - Holiday Event | Arts Festival | Concert | Dance Festival | Music Festival in Rome

One of the most important cities for all manner of events in Italy, there is always something going on in Rome, and this certainly extends to Rome festivals. The Romans, after all, have always been big on spectacle – that whole gladiator thing comes to mind – and the city of Rome remains a vibrant place for music and film festivals, parades, and incredible cultural exhibitions.

Its piazzas always seem to play host to some big outdoor festival, whether it’s the Donna Sotto le Stelle open-air fashion festival that takes place on the Spanish Steps in Piazza di Spagna every July or the boundless jazz trios who set up all over town during October’s Roma Jazz Festival.

Estate Romana is a major arts festival that runs from June to September, when it plays host to several events including book readings, concerts, theater, and movie showings that attract artists from all over the world.

Everyone can geek out during Festival Romics in October, Rome’s very own comic and cartoon festival, while Carnevale in February is a massive eleven-day celebration that includes parades, art performances, music, dancing, plays, and fireworks.

No matter the season there are usually dozens of festivals in Rome to choose from, so no matter what you are looking for, this vibrant Italian city has a festival for you.
