Historical Parade: March 23rd and August 27th
Made up of over 100 participants in Medieval costume, the historical parade represents the ancient Norcia magistrature and features members from each single "guaita" (city area) and "castello" (surrounding village), as recorded in the Norcia statutes printed in Perugia in 1526.
In the afternoon the guaite compete in an ancient crossbow contest in the main town square. The celebrations end with a solemn procession through the streets bearing the reliquary of St Benedict, patron saint of Europe.
