The event attracts many truffle hunters, esteemed chefs, travel bloggers, gastronomic experts, truffle gastro promoters, politicians, artists, celebrities, etc. Guests from Slovenia, Italy, Germany, Austria and even distant Japan come to taste this unique mushroom, admire the beauty end and participate yourself in finding truffles. Zigante Truffle Days will be held every weekend in October.
