Feast Day of Saint George: Saint George is the Patron Saint of Portofino and this festival is dedicated to him. It is celebrated on the 23rd April every year. This is the main festival here and on the second day, you will witness men carry the two famous crucifixions so as to feel the pain of Jesus. The bonfire that happens on the evening also has a very interesting story.
Apart from this a lot of music and wine festivals take place here, but nothing recurs annually. You are lucky if you witness any sort of gathering while you are here.
