Agriturismo S.Angelo, Castiglion Fiorentino - Events and Festivals


Mainly during the summer the whole Valdichiana is liven up by many country festivals, food festivals and cultural events not to be missed. In Brolio, a few steps from the farm house, you will have the chance to take part in one of the most traditional food festivals in Tuscany, the famous "Sagra della Ranocchia" (Frog Festival) in August, where you could taste traditional recipes of the Tuscan countryside and dishes with frog meat.

Among the events in Castiglion Fiorentino you cannot miss all the events happening in May within the so-called "Maggio Castiglionese" (May in Castiglion Fiorentino): markets, fun fair for young people and children, exhibitions, theme evenings, costume parades and much more. Between May and June the town also organizes a Medieval Festival "Festa Medievale Bianco-Azzurra", with typical medieval evenings, falconry shows and jugglers performances, markets of handicrafts and amazing fireworks on the last day of the festival. At the end of June the citizens of Castiglion Fiorentino compete in the so-called "Palio dei Rioni", which is inspired by the more famous Palio of Siena, where each quarter is represented by a horse and a jockey in an exciting ride. Finally, you cannot miss in October the wine tasting festival called "I Giorni di Bacco" (The Days of Bacchus), with a tasting of local wines and of the new wine produced in the area, and entertaining evenings with local music bands.

The summertime also reserves surprises and interesting initiatives in the area of Cortona. Among the main events in Cortona we recommend the events in June related to the historic medieval commemoration of the Archidado, a crossbow tournament, flagflyers and fire-eaters performances and costume parades; the renowned "Sagra della Bistecca Chianina" (T-bone Steak Festival) and the "Sagra del Fungo Porcino" (Porcini Mushrooms Festival) in August and a number of other food events with typical products of the area; and in September the unique "Cortonantiquaria - Mostra Mercato Nazionale dell’Antiquariato" (Antiques Market and Exhibition) for you to discover the fantastic world of antiques and restoration.

So what are you still waiting for? Make a reservation of your vacation in Tuscany to live unforgettable moments and keep the memory of this piece of heaven on earth forever and ever.
