Agrifiera is one of the most popular agricultural fairs in Tuscany, visited by over 100,000 people every year. Now in its 112th edition, Agrifiera takes place in Pontasserchio in the large park dedicated to Tiziano Terzani. It is made up of marquees that welcome companies in pavilions connected to each other and divided into “islands” and aisles divided by type. Agrifiera promotes the agricultural sector with a special focus on enhancing the territory, the quality of life, and the authenticity of food and wine products.
Entrance fee on holidays and pre-holidays. Free for residents on 24 and 30 April on the occasion of the Territorial Days.
Tradition has it that 28 April, the day of the patron saint of Pontasserchio, St Michael Archangel, is the anniversary of the ‘miracle of the Crucifix’, which occurred in the early 1500s. By the mid-nineteenth century, the fair was already consolidated as a religious celebration and feast of the town. The inhabitants of the municipality and the surrounding areas took part in this annual meeting to exchange agricultural products and animals. In 1906 the fair was transformed and became the main zoological exhibition, especially of the Pisan Cow, awarding prizes and medals to the best animals exhibited at the fair.
