Strawberry pies, Coupe Romanoff, strawberry pastries or simply raw strawberries: The list of delicious treats served on Locarno's Piazza Grande is endless!

The annual Strawberry Festival in Locarno is very popular among the locals. But why let them eat all the strawberry delicacies when "Fragole in piazza" is open to anyone? Located amid the colorful buildings on the Piazza Grande, various sellers will be presenting their best strawberry treats. While there is no admission to attend the Strawberry Festival, it is advised that you bring some pocket money in order to taste as many strawberry dishes as possible.
