Definitely get there early. We were there opening day and by about 11:30 am the place was PACKED. More enjoyable to get there right when the doors open, and enjoy it before the crowds pour in.

The fair is actually more like a market/carnival mix with a variety of venders from candy-sellers to clothing to soaps, woods, honey, a carousel and of course truffle meats and cheeses. I had a great time and did quite a bit of walking. adorable town....More

We drove an hour on mountainous single lane roads in fog but was rewarded with a great afternoon in Alba. After visiting Florence, Lucca, and Castilina in Chianti we were dissapointed with the town overall. The white truffle festival was worth the trip . Everything...More
