Early September 2018 - Festa dell'Uva

The biggest event in Borgomanero is the annual appointment with the "Festa dell'Uva" (Grape Feast): a group of cultural, folk and sports events which take place in September and last about ten days. Many bands perform on stage in the main square and clowns, jugglers and waders brighten up the main streets. The feast begins with the arrival, at the railway station, of the local stock characters: Sciura Togna and her servant Carulena (stringently role-played by two men in female clothes) and ends with the traditional parade of carnival floats whose leading theme is the grape harvest. The night before the main streets turn into big dining rooms. Very long tables are prepared for all those citizens who want to eat "polenta e tapulone", the local dish, served with "gorgonzola" and our delicious local wines.
