Festival of chestnuts and local products

The Bocognano sweet chestnut fair, which has existed since 1982 is one of the most important fairs in Corsica and has become an unmissable event.

For 3 days the sweet chestnut is in the spotlight and brings together more than 150 producers and artisans under a heated structure of 3000 m².
The sweet chestnut and its different uses are presented to more than 20,000 visitors.

Organized outside the summer period, the event is essential for many people given its significant economic impact on the Ajaccio region and that of Gravona.
Organized with the aim of promoting Corsican agriculture and culture this event also allowed the structuring of the castaneiculture sector in Corsica.

The event also features a regional chestnut flour competition, symposia and conferences, not to mention cooking demonstrations, entertainment for children and concerts.
