During your Puglia vacation it is always a great idea to take advantage of all the local fairs, festivals and events. Although at this time of year, there are not that many festivals in Apulia in Italy. 
 
Many of the initiatives, in fact, have not been fully relaunched after the forced break of Covid. This is the reason why you may find listings online that have not been updated yet.
 
What follows below is an updated Puglia travel guide of all the autumn festivals in Puglia Italy that have been confirmed for 2021.
 
Taking part in the festivals is an interesting and engaging way to appreciate and have an in-depth experience of Puglia’s land and culture.
 
Your next Puglia trip should definitely include one of these lively and authentic events. Festivals in Puglia Italy are a way to know the local products and taste the very-best of seasonal cuisine. 
 
The autumn festivals in Puglia are often linked to patron saints’ celebrations but they are also a wonderful showcase of local products. They are also often characterized by activities and experiences that involve and engage viewers.
 
For example, the harvesting of grapes in the farms of Puglia, the harvesting of olives in farms and mills or initiatives that revolve around mushrooms or chestnuts picking.
 
A wide variety of opportunities to stay in contact with nature and enjoy the great outdoors.
