Each year, the Saint Ubaldo Society welcomes thousands of visitors to Jessup, PA to celebrate one of the world's oldest and most beloved traditions - la Festa dei Ceri.
Brought to the Jessup community in 1909, the Festa celebrates and honors the life and legacy of Sant'Ubaldo, patron saint of Gubbio, Italy. Although the ceri in Jessup are much smaller than those carried in Gubbio, the same passion, desire and love for Sant' Ubaldo lives within the hearts of those who carry the cero. Don't forget, the Festa dei Ceri is not a race! It's a procession. Sant'Ubaldo always "wins". It ishis day, after all!
