Everyone knows that September is harvest time in this part of the world. Bibione celebrates it with Septemberfest: a festival of grapes and great cuisine that will fill the Piazzale Zenith events area with food & wine stands and shows on 9 and 10 September.
Now taking place for the 37th time, Septemberfest is organized by ProTurist Bibione and it is an initiative by the local estate agents. The extremely popular event brings people of all ages together every year to celebrate the end of the summer and sample the specialities of Bibione’s coast and inland areas.
Wine will take centre stage during the proceedings. During the two days of Septemberfest, visitors will be able to experience the delights of Lison-Pramaggiore Chardonnay and Merlot by wineries from San Michele al Tagliamento, as well as other prized Italian labels. In addition, customers of the estate agents will be given wine bags that entitle them to free tastings.
The healthy, tasty culinary specialities served at the Septemberfest stands come from the local area: they range from exquisite seafood such as sardines, calamari and mussels to Montasio cheese and polenta. This year, there will also be a chance to try a few international dishes, including picanha and Argentinian asado. It will all be complemented by outstanding live music.
While the grown-ups are revelling in all of these treats for their taste buds, children can have a whale of a time with the scenic train and entertainment provided by acrobats, fire-breathers, clowns and jugglers. At 10.30 pm, everyone will gather together on the beach for a fabulous musical fireworks display. The flashes, colours and sounds will light up the sky in glorious symphony. It will be a wonderful way to bid farewell to the magical summer that is coming to an end and look forward to next year, back in Bibione.
