This great festival, held in Sciacca and its “seaside district” constitutes three days of religious, cultural and musical events, including celebrations of local cuisine. In around mid-June, the tricolour Italian flag that symbolises the beginning of the event is raised in the “Marina”. During the festival the ancient marina quarter comes to life in celebration of its Patron Saint, protector of fishermen. On the stage set up in Piazza Dogana choreographic presentations are alternated with musical acts. In addition there are the ancient “neighbourhood games”, the exhibitions, theatrical performances, popular music and the usual fireworks display.
