The Valtopina Truffle Festival
Each year in the trade fair district of Valtopina, a town in the shade of Mount Subasio, the Mostra Mercato del Tartufo or Black and White Truffle Expo is held during the last two weekends of November. Along with other central Umbrian delicacies, the festival offers a vast number of producers displaying their local food products and crafts. Thousands of truffle lovers crowd the village of Valtopina, indulging in truffle-based delicacies inspired by Umbrian traditional cuisine served in the stands and restaurants. During the event, Valtopina becomes a venue for music, culture, and fine foods, enlivened by travelling shows, painting exhibitions, guided tours to discover treasures of art and embroidery, and nature hikes into the Topino valley and in the Park of Mount Subasio.
