Carpino Folk Festival
Since 1996, Carpino Folk Festival– the festival of folk music attracts every year tens of thousand of people into the heart of Gargano. The hub of the event’s performances (all for free) will be Popolo square, in Carpino. The area in the middle of the picturesque urban agglomeration looping around the lake of Varano, along a road skirting the surrounding foothills which form a natural amphitheater enclosed by Capoiale, San Nicola di Varano, Ischitella, Vito del Gargano up to Rodi Garganico, located in an elevated and panoramic position overlooking Poggio Pastromele, has been the historical setting of this event, built around the knowledge and the stimulating creativity of the new generations, thus allowing Carpino to become a sort of ”sanctuary” of alternative music. It is a living memory which sets a practical example of good interpersonal relationships, made of personal stories, songs and dances.
