Sagra del Borgo in Mendrisio

Sagra del Borgo in Mendrisio

The town of Mendrisio is known for its historical monuments, churches, charming alleyways and courtyards.

Located at the southern tip of Ticino, Mendrisio has an illustrious past which can still be felt today. What better time to get acquainted with this typical Ticino town than during Sagra del Borgo? There has always been a grape festival, but the town has revamped the concept as of 2017, paying tribute to the before-mentioned courtyards.

Courtyard action – Mendrisio style

As you will see, traditional houses in Mendrisio have terracotta rooftops and magnificent inner courtyards. During the time of the festival, a line-up of events will be happening in eight of those courtyards. From Jazz and Big Band concerts to children’s workshops, the aim is to relive the customs and traditions of the Mendrisio district. On the town’s piazzas, there will be family activities, magic shows and more.

Finally, we are particularly keen to trying the polenta dishes that will be served hot and fresh throughout Sagra del Borgo. Depending on the courtyard, you will find polenta with mountain cheese, local salami, beef or even game meat like deer! Did I mention the excellent local wines?

Admission is just 8 francs per person, but it is free on Friday and Saturday before 6:30 PM, as well as all day on Sunday.
