16.09.17: FIERA DI TRAVALE: Also this year september brings one the most exciting events of the year in Montieri: The Fiera di Travale, or Travale Fair, a yearly event that happens on the third weekend of September. The well-known event crowds our small town with thousands with visitors that come to see equestrian shows, livestock presentation, live music gigs, markets with local products and hot air balloons. One of the main attractions of the fair is the butteri shows. The butteri (plural form of buttero) were the cowboys of the Maremma region in Tuscany who were in charge of the livestock, especially sheep and cattle, in the region. They were unbelievably skilled men on a horse and with a lasso and, to this day, the tradition's still alive in incredible presentations and competitons all around Tuscany. The presentations will take place on both days of the fair, so you will have chance to watch them and still enjoy the other attractions, like the horseback rides offered by our hotel in the vicinities of the festival. On Saturday night you will be also able to enjoy some live music and the fair ends on Sunday night with a dinner made by the restaurant Giardini di Travale, with typical Tuscan food. Don’t miss it!
