93rd Edition: L’Alba del Futuro
“The Dawn of the Future”
Every weekend from October 7 through December 3, 2023
(with a special opening day on November 1)
The Alba White Truffle World Market where you can purchase the Tuber magnatum Pico remains the center of attention and is open every weekend. All specimens weighing more than 50 grams are guaranteed and certified by the National Truffle Studies Center.
Another favorite is the cooking shows held inside the Sala Beppe Fenoglio with numerous renowned chefs and also with the young students from Alba Accademia Alberghiera. An immersive experience for all the senses accompanied by wine tasting of the famed local wines: Langhe, Monferrato, and Roero.
For all visitors, especially the younger ones, the historical re-enactment and the Palio degli Asini (donkey race) will be held on the weekend of October 14/15 along with many activities, music, dance, and local products. To conclude the folkloristic events, the traditional Flag Festival returns on October 22 with the flag-waving group and musicians from the city of Alba.
These are just a few of the many events planned during this world-famous truffle festival. Find out more on the official website, fieradeltartufo.org
