Every third Sunday of May, the Italian town of Monterosso al Mare celebrates lemons during the Festa del Limone! The festival brings together the whole community to decorate the village with numerous variations of typical local products, as mentioned by Montale in his poems.

La Fête du Citron® (Lemon Festival) is a unique event in the world, which attracts more than 160,000 visitors every year – a number which is constantly rising!

Visitors can discover a whole new fantasy world made up of processions of floats, gardens of lights and the exhibition of giant designs, created by more than 300 professionals and 145 tons of citrus fruits.
