Almond Blossom Festival in Sicily - Sagra del Mandorlo in Fiore

From the 1st - the 10th of February 

The Almond Blossom Festival, known in Italy as the Sagra del Mandorio in Fiore, is a harvest festival that was started first in 1934, initially celebrated as a traditional festival with the intention to commercialize typical Sicilian products. Over the years however it has become an international event attracting tourists from all over the world in time for the almond harvest.

Every year for more than 60 years the valley, covered with a beautiful flowering pink of almond trees is the scene of a unique event presenting folk groups from various parts of the world.

The event opens with the lighting of the tripod of friendship in the Temple of Concordia and ends with the group performances in the valley and the allocation of the scope in the golden temple, a trophy depicting the Temple of Castor and Pollux .

The Festival is divided into a series of attractions, with folk group performances parading through the streets, torchlight evenings of folklore, folk music and the tasting of typical Sicilian produce and dishes.

Other highlights of the festival include a fireworks show and a children's procession where participants wear traditional colorful cloths.
