Cupello Artichoke Festival

24 April - 28 April

Cupello Artichoke Festival

From 24 to 28 April 2024, Cupello will host the “Festival del Carciofo”, a flavorful event to celebrate the symbol of Cupello: the purple-tinted Mazzaferrata artichoke whose hearts are sweet and crunchy.

Conferences and cooking demonstrations, food stands, music, and shows transform the event into a pleasant journey to discover more about this delightful green vegetable.

Choose your preferred menu and enjoy the diversity of this seasonal crop. Meals are purchased upon entering the tent and the local people who step up as waiters for the weekend will bring your food to you at your table.

Each of the adult menu options contains an antipasto, a primo and a secondo, including a glass of wine or bottled water and a finishing artichoke amaro with sweet cantucci biscuits for dipping.

New this year is a Baccala menu for those who desire a seafood option. For those bringing children, the child’s menu is also available.
