Autumn Fish Festival

Town center and Canal Port

Cesenatico (FC)

Cesenatico will become a big restaurant for the "Fish Festival", dedicated to fish from the Adriatic Sea.

Along the canal port and in the squares downtown, all gluttons who love seafood will be forced to take the bait and enjoy the many dishes offered.

Along the streets in historic downtown there will be many food stands where visitors can try traditional local dishes, such as the Adriatic fish fry, seafood risotto and cuttlefish with peas, at very affordable prices.

In the port area of Ponente, near the old docks inside a very large tent, fishermen will make an appetizer from clams and mussels, succulent first courses and the classic fish bakes. All of this will be accompanied by musical entertainment.

Downtown, as is the tradition, there will be stands set up by the volunteers, the Associations of the local fishermen and the chefs of A.RI.CE. - Association Restorateurs of Cesenatico - who will prepare some typical Romagna seafood dishes, such as fish skewers, Adriatic fish fry, cuttlefish with peas and pasta in fish broth.

Thanks to a dispensation by the Ministry, the fishermen will be allowed to fish on Saturday and Sunday and to sell their catch at the Municipal Fishmonger, which will be open all weekend from 9am to 8pm.

The fish used at the stands and restaurants will be of the Adriatic Sea. Mullet, tub fish, anchovies, mackerel, mantis shrimp, merlani, etc. can be seen fresh on display at the Municipal Fishmonger just before they are served.
