Ottobrata is Sicily's version of Oktoberfest. The difference? Not really a focus on beer and brats but instead on honey, mushrooms, cheese, meats, pastries, pasta, and a little home made wine. It is in the town of Zafferana which sits on the lower part of Mt. Etna and is most famous for their honey (miele). Ottobrata lasts the whole month of Ottobre (October). There is at least a mile through the town all set up with the food and vendors. We had such a good time we plan to go back!
