A mix of religious and folklore always marks every year the feast of San Vito, who is the patron saint of the homonymous seaside resort.

A week in which the seaside village celebrates its patron saint on the day of his ascension to the sky, which, like every year, invokes many faithful, but also simple curious and tourists who already flock to the beaches these early summer days.

In ancient times, San Vito Capo was a seaside village and most San Vito devotees are in the mariners, who with great faith and devotion find themselves together to rediscover their cultural identity.

It is an unforgettable opportunity that fishermen take full advantage of, leaving all the boats in the harbor because they do not want to miss the great appointment of the procession that takes place in the evening after a long week of preparation made of prayer.

The community, like every year, participates in this event with the traditional Antenna a Mare game, which is played with a 10 meter beam on the water in the marina in the middle of the boats, while on the beach the boys challenge each other in this Discipline, trying to prevail over the other and avoid falling squalidly into the water.

As we said, the feast of June 15 is preceded by a long week of prayer with Eucharistic celebrations taking place in the Sanctuary, while the folklore aspect is left to the square concerts and the music bands, but the most important moment is what You live at sunset when the boats to a precise signal, they go out to sea to welcome the statue of the saint, carried on a small boat.

After the landing, the saintīs simulacro, covered with sacred insignia, goes to the procession for the streets of the town.

San Vito is not only venerated in the homonymous place but is also celebrated in some of the provinces of Trapani, Castellammare del Golfo and Mazara del Vallo, also its patron saint.

The celebrations close with the traditional pyrotechnic games.
