When Our Past Meets our Future

The European Union, which gives patronage to the Almond Blossom Fest 2018, is currently celebrating  The European Year of Cultural Heritage. The EU thinks of the 73rd Almond Blossom Fest as a part of its plan to highlight the importance of Cultural heritage and promote cultural events, discover our European roots and inspire future generations to build a new Europe.

Main purpose of The European Year of Cultural Heritage is to raise awareness on cultural heritage and to attract interest on the big part it plays in people’s lives, from a social and economic perspective. EU and the Almond blossom fest share a “motto” and set common goals: When Our Past Meets our Future.

The taste of culture

THE ROW material


The “mandorla”(Italian for almond) is maybe the most commonly used raw material in Agrigento. From their picking up to the way local people treat these exquisites nuts, almonds can be seen as a symbol of the local Peasant tradition and a delicious link to our past.


Traditional Food: Our Excellences

The Almond Blossom Fest is proud to present an Exhibition/Food Fair Hosted at the “Palacongressi” Conference Centre. The exhibition will focus on Sicilian traditional food: you will have the chance to get to know more about the production of Almonds, taste exquisite typical Sicilian Patisserie and learn more about our SlowFood networks.

Myths, Legends and Storytellers

Come discover our ancient troubadour tradition: when TV, Radio, and the Internet didn’t exist, people gathered on the streets and in the public squares to hear the enchanting verses and rhymes of a singing poet: the Storyteller.
