Speck Festival South Tyrol

Every year in autumn, everything revolves around the hearty South Tyrolean Speck: 22 weeks is its average maturation time

What the Bread and Strudel Market is for Bressanone and the Strawberry Festival for Martello, the Speck Festival South Tyrol is for other valleys. Until 2022, for a whole weekend the South Tyrolean Speck PGI was celebrated under the stunning backdrop of the Odle Peaks in the Val di Funes. Speck is the indispensable ingredient of every South Tyrolean Marende and a tasty souvenir - a sandwich with Speck, mountain cheese and/or pickles is the perfect snack during a hike.

In 2023, the festival has changed location and is now held on famous Mt. Plan de Corones in the Val Pusteria valley. It is organized by the South Tyrolean Speck Consortium in autumn, a few weeks before the mighty Plan de Corones Skiing Area opens its doors. In these two days between the end of September and the beginning of October, an insight into the working world and the customs of the region, South Tyrolean delicacies, live music and guided summit hikes await you.
