Experience the Saint Ubaldo Day Running of the Saints! Held annually on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, Lackawanna County's most unique festival only takes place in two places in the world: The sister Cities of Jessup, Pennsylvania, and Gubbio, Italy. Brought to Jessup in 1909, St. Ubaldo Day (La Corsa dei Ceri) was a way for immigrants from Gubbio who largely settled in Jessup to feel connected to the home they left behind.

For over 100 years, this celebration has brought thousands of spectators to Lackawanna County to join in the fun. This wonderful tradition is an exciting combination of color, culture, pride, and faith that the whole family will enjoy.

The train ride will last approximately 1.25 hours; departing Steamtown at 3 p.m. and arriving in Jessup at 4:15 p.m. There will be a 2.75-hour layover at the Jessup Station for the event. Returning train ride will last approximately 1.5 hours; departing Jessup at 7 p.m. and arriving in Steamtown at 8:30 p.m.

You can purchase tickets for this event here.
