10th Fair of the Mushroom and the Boletaire de Solsona

Once again, Solsona celebrates the mushroom fair and the boletaire, the most awaited fair of October.

Despite the expectations that have left us a hot summer, which still lasts and the few rains that should have already begun in August, from the Solsonès Regional Council, they will be launching the 10th Boletus Fair and the boletaire of Solsona.

This fair, will be held on October 21 and 22 and despite the few mushrooms that have been found this year, apart from promoting the gastronomic sector around the mushroom, want to promote greater awareness in respect to forests and natural environment.
