La Corsa dei Ceri
As well as the well known Ceri Race on May 15th, at the end of May there is the Crossbow Palio. Records of this contest appear as early as 1410. The Società Balestrieri Eugubina and the Società Balestrieri di San Sepolcro compete in Medieval costume with fixed Medieval crossbows in Piazza della Signoria. The day is rounded off with ability displays by flag-throwers and a historical parade through the city streets lit only with torches.

In June there is the Giro turistico dell’Eugubino, for vintage cars and motorbikes, which attracts many participants even from outside Italy.

The Gubbio Festival runs through July and August and consists of masterclasses for musicians held by international soloists. Students arrive from all over the world. The best students then take part along with their teachers in a series of concerts in various atmospheric locations scattered around the old town centre.

L'Albero più grande del mondo

On August 14th, there is the Quartieri tournament, whcih features more or less the same programme as the Palio della Balestra, only this time the city's different areas compete against one another.
At Christmas time, illumination arranged across the entire side of Monte Ingino forms the largest Christmas Tree in the world.
