The Ottobrata in Zafferana Etnea

Each Sunday of October in the small historical centre of the village of Zafferana Etnea, located on Etna’s mountainside, takes place the famous "Ottobrata Zafferanese".

It is a famous touristic market-fair where you can taste the most famous typical products from Etna’s region (honey, mushrooms, wine, olive oil, chestnuts, sweets, liquors) and meet with local master artisans.

The fair takes place without interruption since the 80s, promoting and disseminating folk traditions, old crafts and products.

Each day of this fair is dedicated to a typical product in a context enriched by shows that liven up the streets of the old city.
