Folklore festival ”Cesenatico” Rimini
One of the most popular folklore festivals in our program, ‘’Marelandia’’ actually takes place on the main square of Cesenatico – Piazza Andrea Costa. To clarify, we say Rimini as we are all more familiar with this town on the Adriatic sea. These two towns are next to each other and connected by beautiful sandy beach.
We suggest that you spend the first day of your stay in Rimini on a beach. In that way, you will relax for the evening performance. At dinner time, thousands of visitors, tourists and residents will gather to watch your performance on an open-air stage of Folklore festival ‘’Marelandia’’ Cesenatico– Rimini. Just before performances, you will present your national costumes in a spectacular parade of participants along the Port Canal. This canal was designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Crowded with fishing boats and surrounded by bars and restaurants, this Canal will remind you of Venice.
