Trevi's Black Celery Festival

Does anyone know the dates of Trevi's Black Celery Festival in 2013? We will be staying in Citta della Pieve and would very much like to attend the festival. Thanks.

According to this site, in Italian, it's been the third Sunday in October for over 30 years.

I must say that in the pictures it looks green, and no different from any other celery. However, they say it has a "pronounced taste" and no strings. I'm not sure the pronounced taste would attract me, but the lack of strings sounds like a good idea.

Thanks for the information .... unfortunately, we will be in Umbria for the 2nd weekend of October, so I guess we will miss the Festival.

Maybe you can still find some black celery for sale, if it's a local specialty.

Thanks to all for the information. Hopefully we will be able to at least try the "black celery" during our stay in Umbria.

I had a perfect meal at L'Alchimista in Montefalco in October as the celery palio came into play at Trevi. The 'black celery' with pecorino was superbo and luckily i agreed to share my dish otherwise no hope of downing a premi blue rare truffled steak to follow.

Seriously good tastes but not to radical in difference to the celery dishes i do here in Oz....... half the attraction is where you have it.....and on holiday.
