May: Feast of Santa Rita
The 22nd May thousands of pilgrims from all over the world arrive at Cascia to pay homage to Santa Rita, an event with which for the number of visitors and its intensity very few similar ceremonies can compete. Two days are dedicated to the celebration which consists of several events. It starts in the evening of the 21st May, when some athletes from the twin village of Cascia bring a torch which is used to light a tripod which is situated in front of the church square of the Basilica di Santa Rita.
The next day, in the morning of the 22nd May, the historical procession takes place in which the life, the works and the wonders of Santa Rita are performed.
The festivities continue with the worldly part with concerts and the final fireworks.
