Festa di San Crispolto
Patron Saint celebration with Fireworks
May 11

Bettona’s biggest annual celebration honors the town’s Patron Saint, San Crispolto. A concert, special mass with the Bishop presiding, and two processions (in full regalia with the Bishop carrying the reliquary of the Saint) around town and outside the walls are par for the course here in Bettona. Religiously significant for the town, for many the highlight is a wonderful fireworks display on the hill overlooking Bettona. And Palazzo Fiumi-LaPlaca has a pretty spectacular front row seat from the rear balcony. It’s the perfect place to join in as friends come to the palazzo for prosecco, dessert, and the best view in town.
