The Soup Festival is a free, popular, playful and open air soup contest, spiced up by street artists and tireless volunteers. The Bologna Great International Soup Festival - 11th edition will be in via Salgari (between the “Virgolone” and the Salgari vegetable gardens), on Sunday, April 23rd 2017
Make sure to go early if you want to take part in the free tasting and to vote your favourite soup! After the winners' proclamation, the party goes on with many artistic performances.
The cook-off festival is organized by local cultural associations Oltre…, Betty and Books and Orti Salgari, in collaboration with Centro Sociale Pilastro, in order to promote active community involvement and cultural and generational melting pot. Special guest: the French cultural association La Fabric des Impossibles, ready to organize the first local Soup Festival in the Paris neighborhood. The festival is also supported by Quartiere San Donato - San Vitale, Regione Emilia Romagna and Città del Capo Radio Metropolitana.
People are encouraged to come by bike or bus and bring their own bowl and spoon (to reduce plastic waste).
