“Palio Remiero delle Contrade” Regatta

Don't miss the “Palio Remiero delle Contrade” Regatta in Cavallino Treporti

One of the most characteristic and highly anticipated summer events in the region is the “Palio Remiero delle Contrade” Regatta in Cavallino Treporti, a twenty-year-old sports event that takes place every year in early June.

It is a Venetian-style rowing race on the waters of the Pordelio Canal, featuring skilled local rowers and their typical Venetian rowing boats, including caorline, gondolas, and mascarete.


The “Palio Remiero delle Contrade” Regatta recalls the historic competition among the farmers of Sant’Erasmo, delle Vignole, and Cavallino, who would travel by boat to the Rialto market every morning to sell their produce, engaging in fierce races to arrive first and secure the best spots.

Today, it represents a highly cherished event where sports, tradition, and nature come together to transform the Venetian lagoon into a unique and exciting stage, both for the locals and the many tourists staying on the coast during the summer.

Competing in the traditional Venetian rowing style are the 12 ancient contrade of Cavallino Treporti: Cavallino, Treporti, Ca’ Vio, Ca’ Savio, Faro Piave Vecchia, Ca’ di Valle, Ca’ Ballarin, Ca’ Pasquali, Punta Sabbioni, Saccagnana, Treporti, and Lio Piccolo.
