Acquavivo Picena: Medieval Wedding Banquet
August 4 - August 7
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 4 of August, repeating indefinitely
That’s right, a Medieval Wedding Banquet, also called the Banchetto Nuziale Medievale, takes place every August in the village of Acquavivo Picena in Le Marche. The weekend invites guests to step back into the 13th century by witnessing a blessing of cloth, performances, a wedding, a palio and, last but not least, a feast in celebration of the marriage between Forastéria of Acquaviva and Rainaldo of Brunforte.
