Fest of the redeemer venice: redentore festival 2020

La festa del redentore is the most beloved Venice events for Venetians. It takes place every third weekend of July to celebrate the end of the terrible plague. Fireworks are thrown from the Giudecca canal above the st mark s basin. The most beautiful way to experience the redentore in Venice is on a boat: the best view to see the fireworks display but above all a splendid way to have a party sailing with Venice in front of your eyes!


Why did we enjoy this fest of the redeemer venice party?

  • The departure of the boat party from Tronchetto is convenient for everyone, both for those arriving from the historic center of Venice (reachable by vaporetto line 2) and for those arriving from the mainland with the possibility of parking right there!
  • The cruise party include buffet dinner accompanied by DJ music from the beginning of the evening. 
  • This year Redentore 2020 recovers a special meaning after the coronavirus pandemic.


What better way to say goodbye to the end of our Coronavirus quarantine than using a traditional ritual? Yes, the Redentore festival is celebrating the end of the pandemic. Welcome aboard to celebrate a new beginning!  


Redeemer Boat Party 2020 

We will sail on the Venice lagoon in a double-decker boat. Buffets, cocktails and the best Venetian DJs will accompany you during the evening. You will enjoy an idyllic panorama to admire the typical fireworks in the Saint Mark basin. 

Embarkation on the boat will begin at 7 p.m. so we can be ready to begin our sail at 7.30 p.m. towards the San Marco basin. We will be positioned in the first stalls to admire the fireworks. Fireworks are drawn at 11.30 pm and the shows lasts 40 minutes. You will have the best view on board!

Between half past midnight and one o’clock, we will dock at Riva degli Schiavoni to let those who want to finish the evening early or those who prefer to get off in the centre of Venice. We will continue the party sailing in the lagoon and welcome onboard people who has chosen the after party ticket and want to party until late at night. The possibilities of parties in Venice are not so many (and yes the city offers only a disco)… nothing better than partying on a boat! You can go wild on the track until 3 am.

Reedemer festival, what is it?

For those who don’t know what the fest of Redeemer Venice is, here are a few hints. To help the end of the plague pandemic ‘500, which killed 50,000 people, including the famous painter Titian, the Senate decided to ask for divine help by building a wooden church on the island of Giudecca: the church of the Redeemer (built by andrea palladio). On 20th July 1577 the end of the pandemic was celebrated, thanking the redeeming Christ with a procession. To cross the Giudecca Canal from zattere to the church a votive pontoon bridge was created. Each year from 5 centuries, for the festa del redentore a bridge connecting the zattere allows people to cross the canal and reach the Redentore Church. A regatta of the redeemer (with traditional venetian oats) and catholic celebrations are done on sunday.  On saturday, to see venice fireworks, the Venetians go out strictly by boat. They eat and drink all together! 


If you are looking for a VIP party with a seated dinner, you can see our other redentore offer, venice fireworks.
