Sicilian Cart Festival

My wife and I arrive in Taormina on May29th. I heard there is a Sicilian Cart Festival the last week of May but cannot find the dates. Can anyone help? Also, we plan to spend 8 nights in Taormina at the Hotel Monte Tauro. Is this too long? Are there some nice day trips to break it up? I expect to rent a car.

I tried to find the dates for this last year when we were in Taormina in May, no luck. Taormina's event calendar for 2013 shows the Sagra del Costume e del Carretto Siciliano in May but again, no dates. www.Taormina.it

Unfortunately there is no programma for the Sagra del Costume e del Carretto Siciliano this year – It’s unknown if this festival will occur.

Thank you for your reply. That the festival would not occur was the sense I got when searching for it last year.

This information was provided by Taormina's Tourist Information and the tourism office in the Comune di Taormina.
