San Giorgio festa in Modica - what day does it fall on?

Hi Everyone,

I would really like to visit Modica this year for a number of reasons. My family is originally from there and I have never been to visit. I'd like to go during the San Giorgio festival, but I can't figure out exactly when it falls. It seems like it was on the 25th of April in 2010? It is always around this time? What other events go on aside from the parade for the saint and the fireworks?

Thanks in advance for any info!!

Welcome to Sicily JB5150!

Yes, San Giorgio was celebrated on Sunday, the 25th of April 2010.

The entire town of Modica celebrates – It’s a wonderful time to visit!

If you were to enter “Festa di San Giorgio Modica” in a Google search, you could view many YouTube clips of the festivities.

San Giorgio is celebrated the Sunday after the 23rd April - so in 2011 it is 24 April - but this is also Easter Day - so it is possible I suppose that they will decide to bring it forward or postpone it for a week.
