SOUTH TYROL’S BIGGEST FOLK FESTIVAL IS THE “SARNER KIRCHTAG”, THE LOCAL SAINT’S DAY: AN AUTUMN CELEBRATION, COSTUME PARADE AND BUSINESS DAY IN ONE
Where there’s a market, there’s life
Each Saturday in Sarentino Village the farmers set up their market stalls on the square in front of the church. A weekly meeting that provides a varied, lively mix. Whether simply strolling or hunting for bargains, there is something for everyone.
Once a year, always the first weekend in September, the fair is staged, an uninhibited folk festival of fun, dancing and horse-drawn floats. The “Sarner Kirchtag” and the farmers’ market belong to the village like the tower belongs to the church.
