October in Turin

Fall is high season in Piedmont thanks to the white truffle hunt season and the international truffle fair in Alba. Also the harvest slowly moves from the white to the full-bodied red wines. But what about Turin? What do people do?

Actually, people love to be in Turin in October and November because there are endless things to do and for all kinds of budgets!

The top three events listed below have been taking place in Turin every October and still represent our local soul; to them, please, add the many art exhibits and all the food and wine related appointments that celebrate the harvest.
In fact, 2018 sees the opening to the public of the royal kitchens inside the Royal Palace and the downtown arcades / porticoes, shops and major museums turned into a big wine and food tasting plaza. And some Toret fountains will even be pouring wine instead of water! 🙆
Picture yourselves sipping locally produced wines paired with our local specialties on October 19-28 when you can stroll under the arcades/poriticoes with a glass of wine in one hand and food in the other!
After all, what image best describes Turin as an Epicurean Capital? 😎

Movement: Torino Music Festival

Turin is the Italian MO-Town thanks to its automobile industry (ever heard of FIAT 500?) but also for the love of electronic and techno music! This festival has been taking place in Turin for over a decade every October and makes of Turin a real haven for all dance lovers! 
So, this October 12-13 has a rich program of 12h parties in Lingotto, extra events, workshops and club nights all across our city.

Torino Danza Festival

Dance me to the end of Love is the title of the 2018 edition that lasts 3 months up to December 1st.
In a universal language, 18 shows, 16 theater companies coming from 8 different countries express ideas, moods, currents, dance styles, charm, poetry, music and moving shapes. If dancing is your passion, Turin is your city! This is one of those festivals that take place in theaters, castles and other unusual venues. The ticket price varies to welcome everyone and share the love for dance with all budgets.
Have a look at this year's program and if you can't make it in 2018, mark it down for 2019!
