Terra Madre Salone del Gusto was first held in 1996 and is one of the world’s most important events dedicated to artisan and small-scale food and wine producers as well as a forum of exchange for producers and consumers from around the world. The latest edition in 2018 attracted over seven thousand delegates from 143 countries, 300 Slow Food Presidia and 1000 food communities of the Terra Madre network in five continents, along with hundreds of thousands public visitors.


The next Terra Madre gathering will take place in September of 2020.


In 2018, Terra Madre Salone del Gusto took place on September 20-24 in Turin, Italy. We have about 275 delegates going from the USA, and we’re excited to see you Turin. Below are few resources to help you meet other delegates and prepare for this incredible culinary and cultural experience.

If you attended Terra Madre in 2018 as a delegate, please join the Terra Madre 2018 Delegates Facebook group. Take a minute to introduce yourself, then connect with others. If you have questions, this is a great place to ask them.
