Golositalia is the fair entirely dedicated to the food and wine sector that has been held for seven years along the shores of Lake Garda, in Brescia. It is an all-round event that involves the experts of the sector but also the general public, with live events, cooking classes, culinary competitions and delicious tasting events.
The fair lasts 4 days and the calendar of events is really rich: it will be difficult, if not impossible, to see everything. Tastings and courses have an extra cost and will therefore not be included in the admission fee, but good news, pets will be allowed, for a fun family outing among the flavors and smells of Italian cuisine.
