Every year in December Carrù holds a festival dedicated to the Ox; an event that has its historical roots in 1473, and then became a full-fledged Fair starting in 1910.
It is an unmissable event that aims to celebrate the traditional breeding of this breed of cattle practiced in the area for centuries.
The Piedmontese ox has a white coat and is castrated by eight months of age to encourage natural weight gain in order to obtain meat of exceptional quality. A livestock show is held during the event in which three categories of oxen take part.
A prize is also awarded to the heaviest ox.
