In July Pontinia comes alive with the ‘scratchy’ notes of rock and the warm atmosphere of the blues in the picturesque setting of the Open Air Theatre Pontinia. The “Pontinia Rock & Blues Festival” is an event with great music, book presentations and tasting of the best dishes of the Pontine territory.
The festival is divided into several evenings with free entry where each provides a series of concerts. During the festival, viewers can listen to great international guests and young emerging Italians.
In addition to concerts, during the festival visitors can take part in craft beer tastings and taste excellent food from the Pontine area.
Furthermore, during the days of the festival there is the presentation of cultural projects related to the territory and current events. The proposal of cultural, culinary and aggregation spaces make the public feel at ease and make the environment friendly and fun.
The first edition of the festival was in 1993. Then there was a setback between 1997 and 2003. Since 2004 the festival has resumed its activity on an annual basis. The festival is organized by the association “Officina Culturale Papyrus”.
