Truffle Fair in Alba

From October to mid-November, in Alba  in Piedmont, everything revolves around the famous white truffle.
Every Saturday and Sunday during this period, visitors can visit the truffle market, where they can see the precious tuber, get more information, shop and taste it at the stands of local traders and truffle hunters.
At the same time 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 demonstrate their skills in show cooking, preparing and reinterpreting truffle dishes.
The colourful supporting programme also offers numerous other events such as exhibitions, book presentations and sporting events.

A highlight of the programme is the traditional donkey race of Alba, which takes place every year just before the truffle fair, in which the different districts of the town compete against each other.
The so-called Palio degli Asini in Piazza Medford is preceded by a medieval procession through the historic centre of Alba.
The event in Alba is not the only truffle event in northern Italy: in San Miniato in Tuscany, for example, the friends of the Tartufo meet on three weekends in November/December.
