Thank you!

 

From October 5th to November 24th, the city of Alba in northern Italy’s Piedmont region will once again host the International White Truffle Fair which unites culture, the territory, sensory and gastronomic experiences. 

With over 600 thousand visitors, the International White Truffle Fair of Alba is the epicenter of excellent food and wine, and a major tourist attraction drawing visitors from all over Italy, Europe and beyond.

The mystery and charm of the Pico Tuber magnatum, or the white truffle, will once again take center stage. It has become the symbol of a wealth of collective experiences that unites catering, hospitality and the authentic Italian way of life unique to this area.

Truffle hunting is a practice founded on very concrete bases made up of natural clues, but also on intangible and non-demonstrable events. For truffle hunters, the moon is an integral part of the search. The lunar phases mark a precise time to determine when and where to find truffles.

A Fair That Goes Beyond the Fair

The beauty of the International White Truffle Fair of Alba is that it goes beyond the “traditional” gastronomic event, offering its visitors a vast array of exhibitions, cooking shows, folklore, street events and experiential itineraries.

The combination of high gastronomy and culture is once again present in this 89th edition with large exhibitions, ranging from contemporary to modern art, design projects, but also concerts and literary events.

It’s also a family-friendly event with loads of activities designed specifically for the little ones.

History and folklore will unite on the first Sunday of October, with the Palio degli Asini. The race is preceded by a beautiful historical parade and, like any self-respecting palio, the factions of the city will challenge each other in competition.

Useful information

  • Tickets are available online on the official website and include a Wine Tasting Experience, Sensory Truffle Analysis & “Foodie Moments”
  • The Fair is easily accessible both by car and by public transport
  • All contacts for tour bookings, dinners etc. can be found in the appropriate section on the official website
