The most tasteful festival of the autumn season in Trentino celebrates its 10th anniversary with a three-day event in the open air, in touch with the splendid nature of the Dolomites in Fassa, when the protagonist is once again the Puzzone di Moena DOP. Cheese makers and farmers open the doors of their stables, cheese factories and dairy farms to let you live authentic experiences, characteristic of the life at altitude, during one of the most beautiful months of the year, with a clean sky, the fresh air and the autumn colours starting to spread. From Friday till Sunday, in and around Moena, you will find a rich programme of events that suit every taste, in total safety:
guided visits at the discovery of the secrets of the cheese making;
animated wallks through the stables of the village, to meet the farmers and their cows at their return from the pastures;
guided tastings for cheese lovers and foodies in general;
AperiTour through the most fascinating corners of the Fairy of the Dolomites, where the cheese meets the wines from the region and the apple juica La Trentina;
"Aperitivo a tutta Birra", the aperitif with the newest craft beer made in Val di Fassa.
For those who love nature, instead, two tours dedicated to the taste, through "wow" breakfasts and traditional lunches, to be covered on foot with the classic Trekking del Puzzone di Moena DOP or cycling during the gripping Puzzone E-bike Tour.
And if you want to taste the King of the cheeses from Trentino while comfortably seated at the table, you have several options: from the traditional lunch in the square, to the menus proposed by the restaurants in the village and the fine food event "Sapori d’autunno".
And this edition brings many news, such as the amusing milking challenge, the animated breakfast with a grandfather and his grandson, both cheesemakers, as protagonists, and an itinerant theatre that, on Saturday and Sunday, will take place in the meadows and through the streets of Moena, telling in a funny way milk, shepherds and cheese makers’ stories to celebrate the protagonists of this week-end.
In the end, if you do not have the chance to take part to it, the Festival del Puzzone reaches you at home with its special Dolomiti Cheese Box and a live stream, to taste this mountain DPO product even from afar.
All the activitites are organized in compliance with the Covid rules.
The traditional parade, the so called "Desmonteada", will be confirmed only if the Covid protocol will allow a safe handling of the event.
