The summer season is plenty of local tradition events, including the “Luminaria di San Domenico”, annual event taking place the first week of August. From around 1600, during the week of devotion to saint, the whole town is filled with light by thousands of candles and torches, which embellish balconies and streets as well as the charming majolica decoration of San Gennaro square. On the same square, every year, you can attend performances of acrobatics groups and fireworks.
Throughout the summer season, from April to October, Praiano is lulled by the melodies of “I suoni degli Dei”, a series of musical events taking place along the Path of the Gods
From May to September, however, you can attend the “Festival della Tradizione” with folk music performances taking place in the main squares: S. Luca and S. Gennaro
Another must see is the solemn celebrations of the Patron Saint “San Luca Evangelista” on the first Sunday of July and October 18.
Also, don’t miss out on the veneration of “San Gennaro”, taking place the first Sunday of May and the 19th of September in the homonymous church of Vettica Maggiore (see above).
Finally, in November, the village is inebriated by the scent of typical local dishes and above all good wine, catapulting everyone into the joyous atmosphere of the “San Martino” festival.
For nightlife lovers, you’ll find the most renowned nightclub of the Amalfi Coast: The Africana Famous Club, built within natural caves a few meters above sea level.
