Desmontegade

When autumn comes and the woods of the Dolomites light up with infinite shades of red and yellow, many villages recall again their rural origins celebrating the return of the animals to the village from the high mountain pastures where they spent the summer months.
These celebrations are called the Desmontegade and evoke the spontaneous celebrations of the return from the pastures and the last phase of the agricultural season.

In recent decades, these celebrations have manily flourished in Agordino and in Cadore. In autumn it was also customary to organise various country fairs to sell and buy items used for work, or for the production of milk and wool, but also and primarily for buying livestock to be slaughtered and used for the production of cured meats and sausages with which to feed the family in the winter months.

Even today there are numerous country fairs organised in the territory; in most cases, these events have lost their main connotation of livestock markets, turning into a re-enactment of ancient customs, exhibitions of animals, especially from farms, and commercial, gastronomic and entertainment moments.
