This event has ended

39th Chestnut Festival

along the streets of the town

Zocca (MO)

Along the streets of the town, in many food stalls, you can taste typical dishes of Modena Apennines, such as borlenghi, crescentine, meats, cheeses and products based on chestnut flour, such as ciacci, polenta, mistocche, cakes, roasted chestnuts and sweets.

Not only typical foods but also typical products at the chestnut growers market and at the local producers market, and at the secondhand and craft market.

Entertainment in the streets and squares of the town during the three days will make this the hottest event of the autumn season.

In about the year 1000, in the Apennines, the chestnut took the place of oak woods. The chestnuts became such a key resource that it was called breadfruit. Today, the Zocca Chestnut is protected by a special mark and celebrated every year in this traditional festival. The flour obtained, very nutritious, is used in cooking to make soups, breads and pastries, and in particular the well-known and delicate "Ciacci" topped with ricotta.
