Originally it was held during the patron saint San Secondo festivities but now it usually takes place on the first Sunday of September.

The day starts with the blessing ceremony of horses and jockeys, followed by an exhibition by flag throwers.

In the afternoon, the historical procession with more than one thousand people in medieval costume is the introduction to the horse competition. The parade is led by the winner of the previous edition of the Palio.

Then the “Palio” bareback horse race is taking place in the streets of the town.
