Sagra is an Italian village festival. The festival season starts in May and ends at the end of October. The main theme is always connected with a speciality of the place, e.g. Sagra Della Castagna, Sagra Del Stoccafisso. The whole village cooks together and comes up with a series of menus on the main theme of the celebration. Everyone who loves eating and celebrating is welcome. After the meal a live band invites you for a dance that lasts until the early hours of the morning. If you are travelling through the villages and you see some makeshift signposts, that's invariably from the hosting village's promotional crew. Take the opportunity to go to a Sagra, feast on the local delicacies, celebrate and dance together with the local people. You really will be impressed!
