Festa d'Autunno di Lugano

This weekend Lugano celebrates the beginning of Autumn with a festival dedicated to local products and eventhough the weather forecast is not brilliant it is worth a stroll.

You will be able to find Ticinese gastronomic delights, a lot of folkloric music and above all the celebrations of the grape and wine. The center of the city will welcome the visitors in numerous grottini operated by local companies which will offer typical Ticinese specialties, such as polenta with stew or beans and mortadella or roast pork, risotto, minestrone, gnocchi and many other exquisite local delights.

Swiss and foreign guests as well as the local population will be able to taste and relish, in cheerful company, the best the region can offer. Why not stock up with some delicious food items and try a new recipe?

In Piazza della Riforma, there are games for children: face-painting and temporary tattoos. There is also a Ludobus with wooden games and snacks on a boat. It’s a chance to play and for kids and parents to have fun together.
