The wild boar Festival in Chianni, closing up this weekend Nov 17th-18th 2012.

Dating back in 1976, when local people organized it for the first time, it is nowadays known as the festival of the entire village of Chianni.

The purpose of the festival is to allow non resident and foreigners to meet up with local farmers’ traditions and cookery bound with the picturesque hunting world of Chianni.
The legend tells that the older team of hunters are called the Indians because they always put the head on the ground to hear the wild board’s coming steps, following Indians’ technique!

The Wild boar festival is stronlgy focused on the local cookery and allows lots of food stands and corners, but it is also an opportunity for enjoyable shows for families such as Dog’s Town Stranomondo performing at 11.30 at the Palestra Comunale, with dogs exhibitions and ludic activities for children.
The volunteers Clowns of the ONLUS association ‘Ridere per Vivere’ will be performing as well.

The Festival will be closed by the parade of the traditional hunters’ teams and live music.

Of course the festival hosts a restaurant where you will fully enjoy the traditional food made by local cooks.
Opening hours Sat 17th e Sund 18th, 12.00-19.00.
