Taking place from October 11th through November 16th in the city center of Alba, a town at the foothills of the Italian Alps, the fair will offer plenty of opportunities to enjoy truffles in all their splendor.
One of the highlights of the festival is the Alba White Truffle Market, which will open on weekends and offer not just truffles but local specialties like pastas, cheeses and baked goods.
