In August 2021 takes place in Cantalupo di Bevagna, in the province of Perugia, the 42nd edition of the Snail Festival dedicated to the traditional and tasty snail dishes.

The Snail Festival in Cantalupo di Bevagna is a very popular and appreciated food event, involving all the inhabitants along with Cantalupo-Castelbuono Pro Loco, planner of the event.

The festival comes from an old popular tradition when, during the pruning, the farmers collected and cooked snails over the blazing fire.

Since 1978, the festival proposes roasted snails with the same old but simple and tasty recipe.

Aspersa snails are combined with special local products such as oil and wine.
