On May 11th and 12th 2023, takes place in Vigevano the 23rd edition of the Children’s Medieval Games, mainly known as Children’s Palio 

The Children’s Palio, first organized in 2001, is an event dedicated to children and young people, and it has been inspired by recalling the October’s Middle Age Palio.

During the two days of celebration: laboratories, food tastings, shows, dances, flags, music…

Sunday afternoon it takes place the historical parade with figures of the Sforza Court and the ancient families of the town.
After the parade, the Medieval games are reviewed and corrected for the young age of the participants.
They are medieval treasure hunts, apple tree, hand-cart races, circle ring race, and the tower construction.

The Palio is a great opportunity to visit also the Sforzesco Castle, which is usually closed to public. It is the main venue of the event activities.

In October, it takes place the traditional “Palio delle Contrade
