Saint Orso Fair: the 2023 edition
January is never an easy month, the festivities are over and spring holidays seem unattainable, yet it's always a cause for celebration for those who love winter sports, and not only that, let's face it, sitting back and admiring the snowy landscape, with a cup of tea, isn't so bad! 😉
Whatever your perfect day off, during the coldest month of the year, I highly recommend you don't miss out on the 2023 edition of the Saint Orso Fair.
The event will be held on 30 and 31 January, in the city of Aosta, which will be invaded by the stalls of artisans and their handicrafts.
The Sant'Orso Fair is a very special event, originating in the year 1000 and named after the church of Sant'Orso where its first editions were held.
The event has since become a fixed appointment for the Aosta region and a showcase for local traditions and handicrafts. The symbol of the event are the sabots, traditional shoes that were apparently distributed by Saint Bear himself, in his charitable works.
The events of the 2023 edition, however, will start on 28 and 29 January, days in which the city of Aosta will be animated by the Atelier Des Métiers, a veritable exhibition of really interesting vintage pieces and handicrafts, and during all four days, the city will be animated by exhibitions, performances and folklore - perhaps, the festivities are not yet over!
