Fiera del Tartufo Moncalvo

20. October 2024 | Truffle Fair | regional Fair

The Moncalvo Truffle Fair, an annual truffle event, is a staple on the cultural calendar of Moncalvo, a picturesque tourist town in Piedmont. Established in 1955, it has since grown into one of the leading events in the region, bringing together the best of culinary delights and cultural experiences..

Moncalvo, situated in Piedmont, has a deep historical and cultural connection to truffles. Piedmont, especially its hilly and wooded areas, is renowned for its abundant production of truffles, with the White Truffle of Alba being especially famous. However, areas like Moncalvo also have a long tradition in truffle hunting and processing.

Being a part of Piedmont, Moncalvo lies in a region that offers favorable climatic and geological conditions for truffle growth. The mixture of limestone soil, regular rainfall, and the cover of deciduous forests creates an ideal environment for truffles.

The Moncalvo Truffle Fair is held annually on the last two Sundays of October. The central venue is Piazza Carlo Alberto, the vibrant heart of Moncalvo. This square, rich in history and charm, becomes the stage for a fair that blends the character of a market with a touch of festivity. Behind this event is the Comune di Moncalvo, the local municipality, which proudly and passionately maintains this tradition, ensuring its growth and prosperity year after year.

The fair primarily celebrates the culinary treasure that is the truffle, but it also extends to other edible fungi and regional specialties. Visitors can look forward to a selection of cheese, wine, baked goods, and many other delicacies from the region. Besides purchasing fresh truffles and other delights, visitors also have the opportunity to taste these specialties. This offers a fantastic chance to truly experience the flavors and tastes of Piedmont.

A special highlight of the fair is the award ceremony for the best truffle of the year, a competition that brings together the best truffle hunters and suppliers from the region. What sets the Moncalvo Truffle Fair apart from other events is its combination of top-tier culinary experiences with folkloric performances set against the picturesque backdrop of a small Italian town.

Not only do locals flock to the fair, but it also attracts many tourists. Many travel agencies even offer specialized gourmet trips to the Truffle Fair, targeted specifically at food connoisseurs. The Moncalvo Truffle Fair is an experience – a tribute to the rich culinary and cultural tradition of Piedmont. For anyone wanting to experience authentic Italy, this event is a must-attend date on the calendar.

The Fiera del Tartufo takes place for the 70th time on Sun., 20.10.2024 in Moncalvo.
