What to Expect at the Best Italian Street Festival in Italy: Sagra Della Mugnaia and The Night of Ilex
We start the first night by exchanging money for medieval coins. Everything throughout the town is bought only using coins during this festival which is just another way that Elice brings the Medieval time to you.
Wandering the streets, the vendors have the most bizarre items you have to see here and you’ll see costumes that put all others to shame. Families and their children participate in this festival with endless amounts of hours going into the makeup and preparations.
Of course, it can’t be a food festival without an overload of delicious dishes, so while the children are wearing costumes and exploring the streets and shows, the older generations are preparing local dishes for the guests.
From homemade bread to fried cow cheese to Porchetta and of course, Arrosticini, the offerings are a myriad of diverse Italian options that all have mouth-watching aromas and eye-delectable delights of all shapes and sizes.
Medieval Reenactments Festival
The town of Elice is closed and locked for this multi-day event as every street corner has activities, performances, dances, archery, witchcraft, sword fighting, mythology, and much, much more to allow you to truly take a step back in time.
