International Pršut Fair This Weekend in Istria


All roads lead to Istria for pršut lovers this weekend…

The 9th International Prosciutto Fair will be held again in Tinjan, Istria this weekend (17 & 18 October 2015).

Organised by the Municipality of Tinjan, together with the Association of Istrian prosciutto producers and the Region of Istra, the event has become a tradition in the region.

Home-made Istrian pršut has been considered and recognized as a symbol of perfection, the Istrian people call it vijulin, meaning violin. It has earned its royal status due to its taste, smell, colour, the right softness and freshness. Its prestigious position is owned to strict, traditional rules producers follow.


Along with an all-day sports, cultural and entertainment programme, this weekend over 30 of the region’s pršut producers will be displaying their products. There will be tastings, competitions and lectures also during the 2-day event. More than 25,000 people are again expected to attend the fair.
