This event has ended

A 137-year old historical carnival

Town center

San Pietro in Casale (BO)

The historical Carnival of San Pietro in Casale allows people to go to the Court of King Sandròn Spaviròn, the stock comic character reigning over this Carnival since 1871. On both Sundays the town streets are covered with masked carnival parades and funny allegoric floats. Visitors can have refreshments with typical local food and wine.

On the second Sunday (February 25) at 8PM, after his triumphal entry into the historical centre of the town, King Sandròn Spaviròn reads his will to the assembled crowd and usually makes everybody laugh because of its biting satire. At the end of the reading, a puppet representing the Carnival is set on fire, according to tradition.

The event is a great occasion to visit San Pietro in Casale, whose beautiful historical centre, with its Bolognese-style porticoes and elegant ancient buildings, strikes you entering the town.

Date: the event will be held on Feb 11, 2018, Feb 25, 2018

Event timetable: from 2.30PM

Entrance: free entry

Due to the bad weather, the second Sunday of parades has been postponed to February 25.
