Camogli Fish Festival

The Camogli Fish Festival is one of the most famous ancient traditional festivals in Liguria. Every year, on the second Sunday in May, it takes place in the marina square, Piazza Colombo, where the world's largest frying pan fries tons of fish for its guests throughout the day.

The festival has ancient origins and dates back to the 17th century, when Camoglian fishermen held a banquet to celebrate the beginning of the fishing season. Today, the Fish Festival has become a highly anticipated event for tourists and locals, who gather to enjoy fresh fried fish and other typical Ligurian dishes.

During the festival, the square is set up with tables and chairs to welcome all guests, while stalls offer local food products and handicrafts. The giant frying pan, 8 meters long and 4 meters wide, is heated over high heat and filled with olive oil and freshly caught fish. Cooks turn the fish with large wooden paddles until it reaches the right crispness.

The Camogli Fish Festival is a unique opportunity to enjoy fresh Mediterranean fish and immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of Liguria. It is an unforgettable festival that attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year.
