Every year, on 30 and 31 January, artists and craftsmen from Valle d’Aosta proudly display their works along the streets of Aosta town centre.
All of the traditional activities are represented: sculpture and inlay on wood, soapstone, wrought iron and leather working, weaving of drap, a traditional woollen fabric on old-style wooden looms, lace, wicker, household objects, wooden ladders, casks..
The Fair of Sant’Orso is not only a celebration of the creativity and industriousness of mountain people, but also a great popular event during which the peculiar characteristics of the identity of Valle d’Aosta’s population are revealed.
The Fair is also about music, folklore and a chance to taste the traditional gourmet products and wines.
In the “foodstaff pavilion you can taste the typical flavours of the Aosta Valley.
The high point of this popular festival is the “Veillà”, on the night between 30 and 31 January, with the streets all lit up and full of people until dawn.
