Cooked by the fishermen themselves, fried or grilled with polenta, our fresh fish is the beloved star ingredient of the festival which fills Caorle with thousands of foodies in September each year on the occasion of the most typical event in Caorle tradition: the Fish Festival!
Even the scenery is particularly charming, considering that the festival takes place on the “Sacheta” beach, on the portion of shore adjacent to the Shrine of Our Lady of the Angel. Indeed, it is on the beach itself that food and wine stalls are set up, along with bar kiosks and tables to accommodate over five hundred people!
For the occasion, casoni will be recreated. These typical sheds are made of ditch reeds from Caorle Lagoon to embellish the festival with a truly special regatta which can be observed from the reef and from the pier just a stone's throw from the Shrine.
Live music and theatre performances enrich this festival which we local caorlotti truly love. No less important is the latest new addition to the event, a gastronomic competition where would-be chefs are thrown into the fray with professional chefs in a challenge, in two separate categories, involving grilling sardines: “Sardee in Grea”!
