To date, the Pro loco of Sandrigo represents one of the most important non-profit organisations for tourism development in the area

It organizes important national and international events: the most famous is the Festival of “Bacalà alla vicentina” which is held every year in September, attended by 50.000 people.

During the festival it is possible to taste the famous typical dish and numerous events are proposed that see the involvement of Italian and Norwegian partners.

In 2007 and 2012, the Pro Loco of Sandrigo together with the Confraternity of Bacalà undertook the journey by sea and land following the route of the Venetian nobleman Pietro Querini. Since then, during each year’s Festa del Bacalà, the Venetian nobleman who brought stockfish to Italy is commemorated with a re-enactment during the Investiture Ceremony.
