In addition, plenty of stands with traditional products from all over Italy, tastings of delicious truffle, oil and wine combinations, gourmet truffle recipes, guided tours and truffle-hunting demonstrations.

Valtopina Truffle Fair starts on Saturday, November 18, with an RV meet-up, a live performance titled “Pere Cotogne”, and dog agility competitions; on Sunday, November 19, a nature stroll, a vintage car meet-up, and the main attraction of the first weekend, the national competition of truffle-searching dogs.
The second weekend (25-26 November) includes a bike race, a live performance by the musical company Innuendo, book presentations, a motorcycle meet-up, and a big ending with fireworks.
