PALIOS AND REENACTMENTS
Palios and reenactments are very popular everywhere in Italy. Near the Locanda during the Summer you will be able to participate in interesting events where the organizers take great pride in having everything as authentic as possible, with artisans, reproductions of period outfits and traditions. Some of the most intersting events are the Festa del Duca in Urbino (August), Palio dell’Oca in Cagli (August) and Gradara Assedio al Castello (July).
Pretty much every food and drink has its own festival including frogs and snails! DOP olive oil in Cartoceto (October and November), brodetto (fish stew) in Fano (September), organic food in Urbino (October), artisan beer in Apecchio, truffles in Acqualagna, Pergola and Sant’Angelo in Vado (mostly in October but also during Summer), cheeses, salamis, chestnuts, wine, polenta and much more.
There are plenty of events in the area during the Summer and early Autumn ranging from a kyte festival in Urbino to religious festivities like the Corpus Domini in all the villages and towns, ceramics events in Urbania, healthy living happenings, farming fairs (of course also music festivals).
