The feasts of Cammarata

La cavalcata Cammarata

A great tradition rooted in time

The horse ride

It is a characteristic manifestation of some festivals that take place in Cammarata. The oldest is the cavalcade of the SS. Crucifix of the Angels, which is celebrated on the last Sunday of May. On this occasion, horses and riders parade between two wings of cheering crowds through the streets of the town. It starts from the house of the "Paliante", that is the one who for a grace received has asked to bring the Palio, and who will therefore have the place of honor during the parade of horses through the streets of the town. The ride  it ends in the evening in the square, where, to the sound of the musical band, all the knights and finally the Paliante and their families will each donate their offer.

Other rides in addition to that of the Holy Crucifix take place for the feast of San Giovanni Bosco, for the feast of the Madonna di Cacciapensieri and for the feast of the Immaculate Conception in Borgo Callea.

Patron Saint St. Nicholas of Bari on 6 December.

The feasts of San Giov. Gemini

Feast of the patron saint St. John the Baptist on June 24th.

Chiesa gesù nazareno

The big date of the year

Jesus Nazarè

Historical and famous in the surrounding villages is the  Feast of Jesus Nazarene, held on the second Sunday of June and which unites hundreds of faithful around the symbol of the feast itself, the Triumphal Chariot, which descends, drawn (symbolically) by oxen, along C.so Francesco Crispi on Saturday evening, and then go up again on Sunday. The hundreds of colored flags accompany the Cart, in a very suggestive "walk". On the other hand, the Statue of Jesus Nazarene comes out very rarely: the last time was in 2011, on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Coronation of the Holy Crucifix.
