The festival of the red potato

Every last weekend of August is celebrated a festival dedicated entirely to the typical product of Borgo Pace: the Red Potato.

The Red Potato Festival is an authentic and high quality village event, where it is possible to watch  potato conferences, exhibitions, entertainment shows, handcraft markets, but also guided tours, tastings, food and wine events with sommeliers and producers.

gnocchi with duck sauce, fried potatoes, roaster meat and of course the famous Crostolo di Sompiano, a calzone filled with boiled potatoes, local sausages and mozzarella, strictly cooked on the grill with local charcoal.
