Summer Artichoke Festival

August 5, 2022 @ 6:30 p.m. - August 6, 2022 @ 11:59 p.m.

The Sagra del carciofo di Uri (Uri Artichoke Festival), among the gastronomic events in the province of Sassari in August 2022, is the festival dedicated to this fantastic product with PDO designation.

You will be able to taste the excellent Sardinian artichoke dishes, elaborated in both traditional and innovative recipes. Surrounding the festival will be many cultural and folkloric events for two days of taste and fun.

In fact, the food and wine event includes workshop activities for adults and children, live music, opening of museums, exhibitions and archaeological sites, and excursions in the area.

The Summer Artichoke Festival reaches its 12th edition.

The community of Uri is now known regionally and off-island for the Sagra del Carciofo Spinoso Sardo.

More than 30 years of the Sagra have celebrated the Uri culture. From families to lovers of culinary arts, from the very young to seekers of culture and folklore attend the event in both its winter/spring edition-which has always been held on the second Sunday in March for over thirty years-and its summer edition-which is held in August.

The spiny artichoke of Sardinia

The Sardinian Spiny Artichoke constitutes a variety with very ancient historical origins rooted in the regional context, and its introduction and spread on the island can be attributed to the Phoenicians.

Leaving aside references from Roman and Medieval times, research in historical archives has revealed a distinct fondness for artichoke cultivation in the Coros area as early as the mid-1700s due to its pleasant taste and therapeutic qualities.

Cultivation in family gardens was fairly widespread, and-according to data from the agrarian cadastre-as early as 1929 artichoke cultivation in Sardinia was extensive in nature, covering 1231 hectares, which ten years later was found to have doubled.
