Sagre Near Guardia Sanframondi

So, I was browsing some Benevento and Sannio links this afternoon and I came across Sannio Turismo. They're dedicated to promoting food & wine and "agritourismo" in Benevento. Not that big a deal, but what really caught my attention was this group of four sagre or food festivals:

That's four food festivals, all within a small area, and all on the same weekend: Food and Wine, Truffles, Porcini Mushrooms, and Caciocavallo Cheese.

Having missed these by one week this year I poked around a little more and from what I can tell they seem to be on the third weekend of September every year.

So what are they like? Here's a video from the Porcini Festival in 2009:

If they have them the same weekend in 2013, that will be September 19 through 22, 2013. Who wants to go?


  1. William, there is a Sagra on porcini going on right now in Cusano Mutri which is 10 km from Guardia. I was told it is going to last for 15 days.

    1. Lol. Just in case you decide to be spontaneous...

    2. I think I'll go down to the Italian Market here in Philly tomorrow - maybe somebody will have some porcini...
