On 16 and 17 October, don't miss the opportunity to experience the autumn atmosphere at the Bellinzona markets!
Easily accessible in just 20 minutes from Colorado, Bellinzona is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage Castles.
The Centro Città di Bellinzona will host numerous stalls displaying alpine cheeses from Ticino and Mesolcina, the fruit of the work of the alpine herdsmen during the summer months on the various mountain pastures.
Various Ticino wine growers will also be present and it will be possible to taste various wines by purchasing a "wine tasting card", with a characteristic glass as a gift.
Sweets and chocolate are also on offer, not forgetting artisan bread in its many forms.
And what would autumn be without chestnuts?
Saturday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through the streets of Bellinzona.
The event will be accompanied by a large fun park for children (with inflatables, face painting, etc.) and moments of theatre and storytelling for the little ones. For adults there will be musical entertainment, and the possibility of eating one of the festival menus in local restaurants.
