La first edition of the Limatola Meatball Festival is bringing a breath of enthusiasm to the small town in the province of Benevento. After the first exciting appointments from 17 19 to May, the festival continues with new dates: from 24 to 26 May and then again the May 31st, June 1st and 2nd. Full days await us tastings of typical dishes and local wine, with a program enriched by entertainment, live music and dancing.

The meatball tradition

The choice to celebrate the meatball is not random, but has its roots in one ancient tradition linked to the day of San Biagio, patron saint of Limatola, which falls on February 3rd. Ennio Marotta, a young entrepreneur and one of the promoters of the festival, explains that the date was moved to May to ensure greater community involvement.

“Through the recipes of our chefs, we will relive the feeling of when you were at home with grandmother and the food that arrived at the table seemed the best in the world”


During the festival, there will be meatballs, vegetable meatballs and many gourmet proposals, ensuring weekends characterized by good food, music and good air.
