Archidado Joust in Cortona

archidado joust Cortona

When? 14 June 2020

Where? Cortona – Tuscany

First organized for the Casali Salimbeni wedding, this contest sees the quintieri, or Cortona’s districts, compete against each other. This is one of the most important events in Cortona and always attracts a huge crowd. Alongside the sporting competition, actors and jokers will entertain the audience and historical re-enactments take over the streets. Food stalls and markets are also present. Simply put, to enter Cortona during the joust is like stepping back in time.
