Cous Cous Fest is an appointment that has now become a fixed point in the calendar of fans of the Cous Cous, and not only. A several centuries-old tradition that of the Cous Cous in Sicily. An art that, contrary to what is believed, has not been handed down to us by the Arabs in the period of their domination at the end of the first millennium.

The program of the event this year is richer than ever, not only for gastronomy experts but also for rich guests from the entertainment world. Every day, from 12am to 24pm along the streets of the magnificent San Vito lo Capo, it will be possible to taste the dishes of over 40 chefs. Cooking show, BIA Cous Cous championship will be some of the moments dedicated to the dish of Maghreb origin.
