The Fano Carnival is ... Culture, Exhibitions, Theatre, Art, Food, Parties, Entertainment and Music and THE SWEETS FALLING is undoubtedly its strength. Every year, tons of sweets and chocolates raining from floats during the parade.
The beautiful PARADES WITH CARTAPESTA FLOATS made by Fano killed masters, are a very exciting event that ends with the suggestive so-called "LUMINARIE" a blaze of light and color. An original feature of the Carnival is the Fano "vulon", the caricature masks, and the "Arabita Music" that's a funny band, founded in 1923, which uses commonly used tools to make music, such as tin cans, coffee pots, jugs. The 2013 edition takes place over three days: January 27, 3 and 10 February.

The unique OFFIDA CARNIVAL  is called "HISTORICAL" because it goes back to ancient rites and legends. On Friday takes place "Lu Bov FINT" hunt Bove Artificial, while in the last day's culminating in the "Procession of Velurd", long bundles of reeds and straw on fire and carried in procession to the center town. Canevale will be celebrated this year from Thursday 7 to Tuesday 12, February.
