Music and entertainment

The Lake Maggiore area is home to many cultural festivals and events held throughout the year.

Classical music events include the Settimane Musicali of Stresa from May to September, and the “Classicamente” series of concerts held in Verbania in May and June. In Arona the International Organ Festival “Sonata Organi” takes place in June and July, and the acoustic guitar festival “Un paese a sei corde” is held on Lake Orta from June to September.
