Autumn Festivals in Ticino (2018 Schedule)

Sep 2 - Nov 11

Marroni Roasted - Chestnuts in Zürich Albisriederplatz

Ticino Autumn Festivals

Flip-flop season is over and the days are getting shorter.

This is the best time to spend some time in Ticino where an impressive line-up of autumn festivals awaits. Here, harvest season is about paying homage to the staples of life south of the alps: polenta, risotto, roasted chestnuts, cheese, music and wine.

You could decide to spend an autumn weekend in Ascona, Bellinzona, Locarno or Lugano. Or you could go deeper into the valleys which will be less crowded during this time of the year. Either way, bring your camera and practice your photography skills during a hike in the yellow chestnut forests…
