Without a doubt: taste the Sicilian street food is one of the things to do absolutely during a holiday in Sicily. And if the trip is to the western part of the island, there is an unmissable event: the 2017 edition of Street food fest in Sciacca, which will take place from August 17th to 20th.
Sicily to taste
This is the motto of the Street food fest in Sciacca. During the days of the event, Stazzone district, which is already the centre of the city’s summer nightlife, will welcome the visitors who want to taste the Sicilian street food made by some of the island’s best producers.
Each stand is dedicated to one product, and the stands are distributed in various areas. In addition, the days of the event will be enriched by cooking shows and talk shows.
How to get there
Sciacca is a small town located in the libero consorzio comunale di Agrigento. To get there from Palermo (one of the main ports for ferries to Sicily):
- Take the state highway 624 towards south;
- Follow the road signs to the state highway 115;
- Follow the road signs to Sciacca.
The journey by car takes about one hour and thirty minutes.
Not only street food
From Sciacca, just take the state highway 115 towards south and follow the road signs to Realmonte, near Porto Empedocle. Here is the famous Scala dei Turchi, one of the most beautiful beaches in Sicily.
Always driving along the state highway 115 towards south, you will have the chance to admire one of the most famous archaeological sites in Sicily: we are talking about the Valley of the Temples, a fascinating treasure that will allow you to make a real journey back in time.
