In spring, everything in the Valli di Tures and Aurina valleys revolves around cheese, whether savoury or fresh, spicy or mild.
For more than a decade it has been impossible to imagine the Tures and Aurina Valleys without the Cheese Festival - "Käsefestival Sand in Taufers" in German, "Festival del Formaggio" in Italian. There, where you can find several farm cheese dairies and the low-fat grey cheese is also produced, everything revolves around the different types of cheese on the 3rd weekend in March. Campo Tures becomes a cheese and gourmet market with 100 exhibitors from half of Europe.
The festival area around the pavilion in the village centre offers a heated area of 1,200 sqm, divided into the cheese variety of South Tyrolean alpine dairies, the presentation of South Tyrolean farmstead cheese dairies, Slow Food from Italy and Europe, and regional quality products. The supporting programme of the festival also includes a cooking arena with young South Tyrolean talents and established top chefs, gourmet laboratories, and speciality days. In addition to this, there are the Valle Aurina Grey Cheese Days with the Grey Cheese Festival in September.
