Unmissable events

In summer, the Taro Valley offers a wide range of interesting events starting from village festivals, to food fairs, to sports and cultural events.

In fall the real protagonists are local food products like the well-known Porcino mushroom, chestnuts and over the last few years even chocolate has become an attraction for local festivals.

In winter and particularly during the Christmas time, local villages are often crowded because of their picturesque Christmas street markets. A downright attraction is also Carnival with its parades and events in local clubs.

On the arrival of spring not only the Rally of the Taro Valley but many other events forecast the arrival of summer.
