Festa d'Autunno - Ciccioli Balsamici

This event has ended

Autumn Festival - Balsamic Cracklings

Piazza Cavicchioni

Albinea (RE)

Flavours, meetings, tastings, traditions as well as exhibitions, workshops, gastronomic stands and old crafts make this autumn event a great place to get to know local specialities.

As part of this event there will be a mushroom exhibition, a plant and ancient fruits expo, an artists' market, folk shows and demonstrations of ancient traditions.

Piazza Cavicchioni will come to life early Saturday morning, when it will be possible to participate in a trip to gather mushrooms, accompanied by mushroom experts, while in the afternoon the food stands will open and serve fried dough, doughnuts and wine.

Sunday will instead be dedicated to chestnuts and local food specialities with tastings and sale of local products, bread baking and other baked goods, in a cornucopia of typical autumn flavors and colors.

This is how visitors will be lured to Albinea by the flavors that remind us of that unifying harmony between man and earth in the slow change of seasons and the passing of time. Symbol of these age old practices, "Il Palio del Cicciolo" (crackling competition) will host the competition of over 30 local pork butchers who will prepare this ancient, typical regional product.

Date: the event will be held on Oct 26, 2019, Oct 27, 2019

Event timetable: all day

Entrance: free entry
