The Fair of the Onions

The Fair of the Onions is linked to the celebrations of Saints Peter and Paul. This Fair is the most important for the city of Isernia and it is held on 28 and 29 June.

The Fair has an ancient origin (the first evidence dates back to the fifteenth century). It was established initially to facilitate trade of onion of the local producers in Isernia.

Today the Fair of the Onions become a very varied and busy fair but they are still the typical banquet with the onion in Isernia. Once the place of the Fair was in the current Park of Remembrance, so called Largo delle Cipolle. Then it was expanded to the north of the city on Corso Risorgimento, and just recently the Fair was moved on the main street of the city Corso Garibaldi.

With the passage of time the Fair of Onions has lost its original function, which was to facilitate the trade of onion. At present, most of the stalls used for the sale of this product has been replaced by generic type fittings, which you can find in any other fair or Italian markets.
