Chocolate Festival Perugia

DATES FOR 2012 - 19 - 28 OCTOBER 2012

The International Eurochocolate festival of Perugia is undoubtedly one of the most sought after Chocolate Festivals amongst Italians and chocolate lovers alike.

The Umbrian capital will turn into a huge open-air chocolate shop!

View our Perugia Hotels here and book at least six months before the festival as Perugia is a small city.

The popularity of this festival continues to grow and accommodation is limited.

Umbria Jazz 11, Perugia 8-17 July 2011.

This year’s festival, from 8 to 17 July, promises music at the highest level. On 9 July, their only Italian date, there is a supergroup comprising Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Marcus Miller, performing a tribute to their maestro Miles Davis, twenty years from his death.

And on 12 July Carlos Santana, the inventor of Latin rock, makes a very welcome return to Perugia. On 16 July there is BB King, the most celebrated, most honoured, most imitated and most loved blues artist playing today; and preceding him onstage is Trombone Shorty, one of the rising stars of New Orleans, with his band Orleans Avenue. All of these concerts will take place at the main festival venue, the Santa Giuliana Stadium.
