The Bronte Pistachio Festival
The 2019 edition of the Pistachio Festival
The “green gold of Etna” and one of the main economic resource of the island: we are obviously talking about the pistachio of Bronte, known and appreciated not only in Sicily but throughout the world. Just to celebrate this typical product of the territory of Etna, as every year is set up the festival in the town of Bronte, at the foot of the volcano.
Pistachio of Bronte PDO
In 2009 Bronte pistachio obtained the European recognition as a PDO product, in defence of imports of much lower quality. This Protected Designation of Origin concerns the area that falls into the territories of Bronte, Adrano and Biancavilla. It is in Bronte that the festival dedicated to the “green gold of Etna” is held every year.
This year will be held the 30th edition of the Pistachio Festival, precisely from the 27th to the 29th of September and from the 4th to the 7th of October. It will be an opportunity to taste pistachio in all its versions: you can buy a delicious pistachio ice cream, a can of pistachio sauce to add to pasta you will eat for lunch with your family, a slice of cake or even pistachio coffee!
Between one tasting and the next you can also attend the shows organized for the occasion and admire the handicrafts on sale in the stands at the fair.
