From November 24th to 26th 2023 takes place in Serra de’ Conti  The Grass Pea Festival 

The Grass Pea Festival is a celebration of the humble legume that has fed local people for centuries, and it aims to promote local products at risk of extinction and clean and eco-friendly productions.

Grass pea (also known as blue sweet pea or chickling pea) is a legume planted at the beginning of April and harvested during the Summer: it is a very resistant and a drought-tolerant plant.
Like other legumes, grass peas are a significant source of protein, dietary fibre and dietary minerals, and contain no cholesterol.

The joyful Grass Pea Festival takes place inside the medieval walls of the wonderful historic centre of Serra de’ Conti, a true gem that has kept its medieval design almost intact.
The narrow streets and small squares host the wine cellars, restaurants and inns where it is possible to taste many traditional recipes such as vincisgrassi, bustringo, pappardelle with goose, and the best wines from Marche.

During the Festival, visitors can also enjoy local products, traditional handicrafts, educational activities, entertainment with street artists and bands, songwriters and singers.
