Festa della Sensa (Ascension Day Festival) Description

Festa della Sensa (Ascension Day Festival) - Community Festival | Holiday Event | Parade | Rowing in Venice.

There is arguably no better summertime celebration of Venetian culture and history than May’s Festa della Sensa (Ascension Day Festival). Festa della Sensa (Ascension Day Festival) commemorates Venice’s unique ties to its waters, dating back to the naval conquests of Doge Pietro Orseolo in 1000 A.D.

Festa della Sensa (Ascension Day Festival) coincides with the Feast of the Ascension, on which Christians celebrate what they believe to be the day that Jesus’ body ascended into heaven. In Venice, the Festa della Sensa (Ascension Day Festival) 2013 recognizes city culture with rowing races and a water parade. The most historic Festa della Sensa (Ascension Day Festival) 2013 event is perhaps the Wedding with the Sea, where a symbolic ring toss into the water reminds the city of its close ties with its waterways.
