Truffle Fair in Alba


From October to mid-November in Alba, Piedmont, everything revolves around the famous white truffle.

Every Saturday and Sunday during this period, visitors to the truffle market can examine the precious tuber at the stalls of traders and truffle seekers of the region, get more information, buy and taste.


In parallel, many other culinary highlights of the region such as cheese, sausage and wine can be purchased and tasted.
Part of the fair is the Alba Truffle Show, where national and international top chefs show their skills in show cooking and prepare truffle dishes and reinterpret them.

The colorful supporting program also offers numerous other events such as exhibitions, book presentations and sporting events.
A highlight of the program each year, right before the truffle fair, is the traditional donkey race of Alba, in which the different districts compete against each other.


The so-called Palio degli Asini in Piazza Medford is preceded by a medieval parade through the historic center of Alba.
The event in Alba is not the only truffle event in northern Italy: in San Miniato in Tuscany, for example, friends of tartufo meet for three weekends in November/December.
