Autumn festivals and fairs

Top gastronomic events to discover Trentino

AUTUMN 2021 - Each season has its own splendour: autumn offers a vibrant carnival of colours, ever-changing natural sceneries, the smell of chestnuts and the rich flavours of wine and apples. This seasonal beauty takes centre stage at the many festivals and fairs that, from September to November, bring Trentino to life.

Grape harvesting is in full swing with big anticipation for the new vintage. Apple growers respond with equal excitement, ready to pick the fruit that made Trentino famous all over the world. Meanwhile, valleys and villages prepare for an exciting season of festivals ahead. Authentic flavours, rural traditions and artisan knowledge are at the heart of these celebrations that renew the bond between the land and nature.

If you are looking for an autumn break in the mountains that combines relaxation and authentic gastronomic pleasures, here’s our guide to the top events you simply can’t miss.

Grape and Wine Festivals 

September and October

September is synonymous of grape harvesting and there’s no better excuse to celebrate with a glass of wine at the many fairs and tastings held around the region, like the ones dedicated to the local red  wines Marzemino or Teroldego.


Pomaria on the Road

Val di Non, 01- 17 october 2021

A festival in honour of Pomona, the ancient goddess protector of orchards and apples, symbol of the Val di Non. With tasting tours, workshops and cooking classes, food & wine stalls featuring the Strada della Mela growers, plus orchards walks and excursions, you can experience in full the apple picking season.


Polenta Festival

STORO, 2-3 october 2021

In October, Storo hosts a unique competition that sees local polentieri (polenta makers) from Valle del Chiese “battling” each other to the last whisk. Star of the show is, of course, la polenta prepared with traditional methods: carbonera - hearty and rich in flavour, di patate - simple and delicate, macafana - a flavoursome staple, cucia - a farm style polenta enriched with alpine butter and cheese.
