St. Luke’s Fair

Early October, Demonte

Demonte Historical Fair, already mentioned in a document at the beginning of the century, however, cannot be exactly placed in its origin. Active until the early 1950s, it gathered numerous cattle that, on this occasion, were sold and purchased after the summer pasture period. The St. Luke’s Fair than experienced a long period of suspension interrupted in 1955 where the municipal administration of Demonte restored it in great style. Since then, the animal parade in the centre of the hamlet and the local products market, serve as a draw for many tourists.
