Oil and Olive Fair – Cartoceto
7 and 14 November 2021. Great local food and wines, and lots of events in Marche Region
On November 7 and 14, 2021 the Oil and Olive Fair takes places in Cartoceto, in the Province of Pesaro-Urbino.
The Fair, now in its 44th edition, is a huge eno-gastronomic, as well as artistic and cultural event that takes visitors on a real journey through art, history, tradition, nature and music.
Cartoceto oil (DOP) has been Marche’s first and only DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) extra virgin olive oil since 30 October 2004, but the Fair has been held continuously since 1977. Its aim is to promote local products, as well as the medieval village of Cartoceto itself, its long history and ancient traditions.
During the days of the Fair, producers display and sell their olive oil and olives (either stored in brine, corned or cooked), and other eno-gastronomic delicacies such as honey, salumi, cheese, nouveau wine.
The Oil and Olive Fair is so much more than great food, as the dozens of artistic and cultural events offered can attest: contests, seminars, educational workshops, guided tastings, art and photography exhibitions, nature strolls, theatrical productions for children, and many concerts.
