From June 2nd to 4th, 2023 – the first weekend of June – a rich program of events animates the streets of Raiano, a small village in the province of L’Aquila, for the 66th edition of Cherry Festival – also known as “Maggiolata”.

The Maggiolata was first organized in 1946, on the same day of Saint Venanzio’s Day, the patron saint of Raiano.
In 1950, it became an autonomous recurrence. Every year, the festival is enriched with parades of allegorical wagons, exhibitions of traditional customs, dances and choirs, all celebrating cherries, the fruit symbol of Raiano.

The Cherry Festival ends with the wagons’ parade, which includes a little wagon for kids.
