Every year in September in Terranuova Bracciolini, the “Festa del Perdono” or Forgiveness Fair takes place. This fair has been a tradition since the 17th century and it’s still the most important fair in the valley. It’s a country fair with many religious, folk and commercial aspects. You don’t want to miss this event, which combines the traditions of the past with the costumes and flavors of the present.

During the Forgiveness Fair, don’t miss the displays of Saint Tito, the patron saint of the country.  Get yourself some roasted chestnuts as you browse around the bird market, the fireworks area, the large flea market, the carnival area, the international handicrafts market and an exhibition-market area of agricultural machinery. 

Today the “Festa del Perdono” is also a trade fair for local and international companies and attracts almost  three hundred thousand visitors every year. The fair is a must-see event that happens every year and keeps a strong link with the rural Renaissance traditions of the past. It takes place every year on the fourth Sunday in September and the following Monday and Tuesday.
