Festa de le Fae 2019
San Giorgio di Valpolicella


On Sunday, November 10th 2109, the traditional Festa de le Fae will take place in San Giorgio Ingannapoltron, near Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella. It seems that from the 15th century, in November, just a few days after All Soul's Day, people in the town used to hand out a fava bean soup (fae in the local dialect) among the inhabitants. This tradition is still alive: you can live it with historical dances, music and typical products of Valpolicella.
