Event > "Keese Fest" (Cheese Festival)

"KEESE FEST" (CHEESE FESTIVAL) Taste the high quality of Altopiano mountain cheese!  The” Keese Fest” (namely “Cheese Festival”) is usually held on the third Sunday of August (this year the 19th edition will take place on the 23rd of august) to celebrate the high quality of local mountain cheese and to show visitors how cheese is made and used in culinary preparations. Born in the mid-90s with the aim of promoting local and dairy gastronomic products to tourists,  it has importantly enlarged during the years, accommodating even sellers and craftsman belonging to various artisanal sectors, hosting up to almost 70 exhibitors. This local market lasts the whole day; for lunch and dinner time, a culinary stand will prepare local dishes, almost entirely prepared with local cheese products. In the night,  a lottery is organized and music bands play live.

Further information
Roana is certainly the most heterogeneous among the municipalities of the Altopiano dei 7 Comuni. It consists in fact of 6 localities, also called “bell towers” because each village has its own parish church. These small towns are: Camporovere, Canove, Cesuna, Mezzaselva,  Roana and Tresché Conca.
Only a few kilometers separate the 6 suburbs from each other, so it is easy to walk or bike between one village to the other, even going alternative routes, forests and meadows.
From any village, unique landscapes and breathtaking views go far beyond the edges of the Altopiano, and the visitor can easily see, when the sky is clear, even the Dolomites and the Venice lagoon in the distance.
Roana's territory is largely covered by forests, fields, pastures and gentle slopes, and the average altitude of the villages is about 1000 metres above sea level; this makes Roana (along with the other municipalities of the Altopiano) the perfect destination for a relaxing mountain holiday.  
The sweetness of the mountain profiles, the fresh air and the endless green invite to spend the day outdoor, in a peaceful environment, where the good climate and the magical colors throughout the four seasons of the year make the tourist feel in peace.
Roana can offer a high level of accommodation and a great network of sports choices, from football and volleyball to tennis, from ice skating or summer-skating to orienteering, from swimming to hiking trees and mountains, not to mention the hundreds of kilometers practicable in summer by bike and in winter skiing and finally a little lake suitable for swimming.
History has left thousands traces during the flow of time: from the prehistory, with the Valdassa graffiti, to the years of the Venetian Republic, when the whole Altopiano was an autonomous federation inhabited by the “Cimbri”, a germanic population that settled down and built villages; from the first world war, when entire villages were destroyed and many forts and trenches were built to fight the Austro-Hungarian enemy, to the years of reconstruction and tourism and agriculture development.
Even the enogastronomic perspective is rich in the Roana surroundings: mountains host tens of alpine huts, where chees is still produced, as long as many other local products, and the lands offer little fruits, mushrooms and herbs in plenty.
Every inch of the territory of Roana and the other seven municipalities is rich in history, culture and local traditions. Many festivals (such as the Hoga Zait) and celebrations are organized in order to preserve the ancient way of life and to show visitors how the strong population of the Altopiano used to live, never forgetting its own roots and its identity.
