In Canavese you never get bored. In all periods of the year there are events and festivals linked to traditions and often with a centuries-old history.
Above all, the Carnival of Ivrea stands out, with its complex ritual and the extraordinary battle of oranges, which transforms the city into a big open-air party. It is possible to visit the Carnival and follow the events safely or for the more daring to participate in the battle.
In many villages of the Canavese there are popular historical re-enactments dedicated to the Middle Ages, to mention at least the May Tournament at the Court of King Arduino in Cuorgnè, the Ides of May in Oglianico and the Medieval Holidays in Pavone.
Important sport events are hosted in Canavese: from international canoe competitions in Ivrea to the Ultra Sky Marathon in the Gran Paradiso National Park, from the European Master Games to Giro d’Italia.
The panorama of music and literary festivals is also rich: from the Ivrea Jazz Festival to the Apolide Festival of Vialfrè, from Tavagnasco Rock to the Great Invasion of Ivrea, just to mention the most famous events. Many events are dedicated to food and wine products (Grapes, mushrooms, herbs, chestnuts, red corn, savoy cabbage, onions, torcetto) and handicraft (ceramics, copper).
