Here’s a selection of  some of the most outstanding events:

A flower festival held each year in April, with more than one hundred exhibitors positioned along the streets of the town centre so as to transform Carpi into an open-air urban garden.

An event which started in 1999, organized by the Cooperativa Sociale Nazareno and it is held each year in May in Carpi, Bologna, Modena and Correggio. It offers a one-week programme of workshops, conferences, art exhibitions and theatre performances in which artists from different countries show the excellence of difference.

Another typical product from the area is the traditional Modena’s balsamic vinegar.
Every year in May, Carpi Balsamica is held in the setting of Carpi’s splendid town centre. The event includes meetings, conversations, debates and guided tastings as a celebration of this symbol of Modena’s food and wine culture.


It 's an International Festival of contemporary theatre, dance and music organized by Foundation Emilia Romagna Teatro. It is held each year (by the end of May and the beginning of June) in Modena and surroundings, to show the excellence of contemporary scene and emerging artists. Concerts, exhibitions, book presentations and meetings with artists, enrich the program.

A picturesque event which, since 2002, has combined the passion for motor cars with that for the regional Emilian cuisine, in particular Crescentine bread, also named Tigelle after the utensil used for cooking.


Again with regional cooking and a culinary-related theme, Carpi celebrates two of the most significant local food and wine products – lasagne washed down with plenty of the typical local wine, Lambrusco D.O.C.


In September Modena, Carpi and Sassuolo organise a “philosophy festival” with plenty of music, art, science and food. Classes are held in public squares, theatres and churches in the three towns. Over the years the festival has seen the participation of major experts in Philosophy and other areas, such as Enzo Bianchi and Jeremy Rifkin. During Saturday evening there is also Tiratardi, a programme of philosophy-related events which lasts for most of the night. Most of the events, with few exceptions, are completely free of charge.


A literary festival held in October in squares and various other venues in Carpi with events, meetings, theatre performances and workshops dedicated to short stories. In the past years It has seen the participation of writers, musicians and actors including Stefano Benni, Maria Paiato, Francois Khan, Clara Sereni, Mimmo Cuticchio and many others.

More than eighty members of the Collegium Ramazzini and their guests, from twenty-five countries, meet each year in October at Palazzo dei Pio, the international location of the Collegium, to listen to scientific papers on subjects related to development, environment and public health, and the relationship among them.
Carpi has played host to the Giornate Ramazziniane since 1983 as the birthplace of Bernardino Ramazzini, a seventeenth-century doctor considered to be the founder of modern occupational medicine.

At the beginning of November, in Martiri Square, a food and wine event that attracts many lovers of good food.
