Like other festival-bearing regions in the Bel Paese, Calabrian months are filled with parties paying homage to everything from Mother Maria to wild mushrooms to snails and nothing punctuates a Calabrian vacation like getting in on the action.
It would be difficult - if not impossible to create an all-encompassing list of festivals in Calabria. Major cities, small villages and intimate neighborhoods - yes, you read that correctly - all celebrate sagre food festivals and saintly celebrations throughout the year.

I don’t know what it is about vacationers, but for some reason many of us tend to let our guards down and do things-sometimes irresponsible things-we wouldn’t normally do at home.
