In the province of Ferrara, Asparagus grows in ideal conditions particularly in the outlying region of the Ferrarese lowlands, an area renowned for its ecological and natural qualities and where about 5000 cubic litres of asparagus are produced.
This festival is one of the most important events on schedule in spring in this area, a good chance to get to know typical products, such as asparagus – the local specialty – and also wine, meat, cheese, pumpkin and much more.
The most common species is the "Early Argenteuil", but other varieties are being studied in order to enhance the quality of wild asparagus even more.
Many local products will be presented in stands and in a little market held in the Estense Castle.
Many events will be organized during the festival: free guided tours, sport events, bike excursions, and workshops for children will give you the opportunity to discover the Po Delta Park, the asparagus trails, and the Mesola Wood and Deer Museum .
Date: the event will be held from Apr 25, 2014 to May 04, 2014
Event timetable: to be defined
