Hippie Festival in the historic centre of Tarquinia: acrobatic and circus art, music, artistic handicrafts

Hippy culture is associated with the idea of the absence of prejudice, with flower children, braids, daisies, music, cheerfulness and above all with her, Lady Liberty, whom we must enjoy at this time with all due precautions.

An exciting event, in full compliance with all the safety regulations dictated by the health emergency: masks, distancing, prevention.

Festival Hippie, a small Woodstock in the historic centre of Tarquinia in total safety. Saturday and Sunday 12 and 13 June 2021 from 11.30 am to 11.45 pm Historical Centre of Tarquinia : Piazza Cavour, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Piazza Giacomo Matteotti

On 12 and 13 June 2021, the splendid historic centre of Tarquinia, a city of art, an Etruscan jewel of the Viterbo area, will host the Hippie Festival for the first time. The festival is strongly supported by the Viva Tarquinia Cultural Association, with the patronage of the City of Tarquinia and the support of the Municipal Administration.

The festival, which has an international flavour but an all-Italian heart, has been at a standstill for more than a year and a half due to the Covid pandemic, and will return to infect everyone with its genuine and sparkling atmosphere.

The Hippie Festival is a mix of emotions, sensations, colours and cultures.

Acrobatic and circus arts, music, arts and crafts, visual art, vintage, workshops, seminars, will involve and enchant every spectator.

The Festival celebrates the craftsmen, creatives and street artists who have never stopped believing in their projects and skills, children of flowers and art who have not lost their creativity during the health emergency.

One big showcase where different stories and experiences meet under the Tarquinia sky.

Piazza Cavour, Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Piazza Matteotti will be joined by numerous craftsmen and makers from all over Italy, ready to satisfy every taste and need.

Among the various stands there will be numerous Boho-chic collections, giving the public the chance to show off their bohemian soul: long, sinuous dresses, silk gypsy dresses, flower crowns for the head, flashy gypsy-style accessories with stones such as turquoise, and rigid, tinkling bracelets.
