Unlike many other places Porto Garibaldi succeeded to preserve its flair of an fishermen village. Fishing and gastronomy are dominating the scene. From here the boats start excursions to the Po Delta or to Ferrara.
In the port with its numerous fishing boats are the usual events are held, such as feast of Our Lady of the Sea, a solemn procession in June, where many decorated boats are participating in the festivity.
In mid-August the great Feast of Hospitality is celebrated: the DOC wine tasting means enjoying free Bosco Eliceo and eat freshly baked delicious sardines.
