Top Events in South Tyrol

South Tyrol offers a large number of interesting events throughout the year that you shouldn’t miss

In South Tyrol, every year begins with the traditional New Year's Eve concerts and ends with the BOclassic, the prestigious New Year's Eve road running competition in the centre of Bolzano. In the 365 days between the two dates, the rich event calendar includes a number of not-to-be-missed events with international appeal, from the Alpine Ski World Cup races in the Val Gardena and Alta Badia to the Speck Festival and the Jazz Festival in summer.

Also the Street Kitchens and the family events, the offer of the Bolzano Fair and the rural Christmas Markets are part of it. If you don't want to miss any event, check our event calendar!
