From September 30th to October 2nd 2022 the small town of Piozzo, in the Province of Cuneo, turns orange for the 27th edition of the Pumpkin Regional Fair, the annual event with over 550 varieties of pumpkins exposed on vintage floats and the technical-scientific exhibition, the pumpkin carvers and many selected stands with locally produced pumpkin-based products.
The Fair, entirely dedicated to the autumnal vegetable and its products, showcases more than 500 types of pumpkin in a unique outdoor technical-scientific exhibition. All pumpkins, that can be bought by visitors, are grown in Piozzo, but using seeds from all over the world.
Great classics of the Pumpkin Regional Fair are: “Laboratorio del Gusto”, with pumpkin tastings, workshops and guided tours of the fair for schools and children, a photo contest , “Dolci alla zucca” contest, which awards the tastiest pumpkin dessert and of course the giant pumpkins, with the heaviest weighing over 537 kg the past editions.
Visitors can taste the pumpkin-based menus at Palazucca.
And then, stalls offering pumpkin delicacies such as bomboloni, muffins, chocolate pralines, risottos, minestrone soups. Every dish, made with local ingredients and following traditional recipees, can be re-made by visitors at home thanks to the “made in Piozzo” recipe book.
