An ideal opportunity to get to know the country and people have the weekly markets - eg at Dogliani or at Alba. Here you can besides food and local specialties also purchase clothes and all the goods of daily use at convenient prices.
The fair of the fat ox ('fiera del bue grasso') in Carru dates back to 1635 and is organized annually since 1910.
At the yearly fair of pumpkins in Piozzo the largest pumpkin is awarded.
