Cervia Mussel Festival

Cervia Mussel Festival

12th edition, celebration of mussels produced in the Cervia sea with tasty dishes for all palates

Cervia mussel festival

30th May to 2nd June 2024

The Cervia Mussel Festival returns to the Borgo Marina, along the canal port.

 A seafaring tradition that returns punctually every year: from the care and attention paid to breeding in all its phases, to the harvesting and cleaning of the seafood on the Cervia mussel beds, to the preparation of healthy and delicious recipes.
