The Omelette festival is a traditional festival that takes place every year in Montaquila, a town in the Molise region of Italy. The festival is dedicated to the omelette, a typical Italian egg-based dish, which is prepared in many different variations during the festival.
These are two days dedicated to the celebration of tradition and the rediscovery of the territory, its nature and its history The sounds and dances of popular tradition will frame the great protagonist of the festival: Last year a mega omelette was cooked using 1782 eggs. Will the record be broken this year?
When does the Omelette Festival take place in Montaquila?
The omelette festival is usually held during the month of May and attracts many visitors from all over the region and even from outside the region. During the party, there are numerous food stands offering omelettes of all kinds, made with fresh, high-quality local ingredients.
What happens during the party?
In addition to tasting the omelette, the party also offers live music, dance performances and other fun activities for the whole family. The party culminates in an omelette contest, where participants compete to create the tastiest and most original omelette, under the watchful eyes of a jury.
Omelette Festival is an important celebration for the local community of Montaquila, which celebrates its culinary and cultural traditions and invites visitors to discover the beauty and charm of this small town in the heart of Molise.
The organizers have not yet communicated the official date of this year’s edition, but it will almost certainly be in the same period of last year (month of May/end of May). So we prepare stomachs and forks and the fun is guaranteed.
Updates and more information can be found on the official website of the festival.
