The city devotes solemn celebrations to its titular saint from the 13th to the 15th of June. The entire population participates in this religious moment with great devotion as do the San Vito Lo Capo fishermen.
Diverse events take place; choral, musical and sporting, parades, exhibitions and a suggestive historical re-enactment of the “landing” of the Saint, accompanied by his guardian Modesto and his nurse Crescentia.
Upon their arrival on the beach at sunset, they head towards the town accompanied by a musical band, the sound of fishing boat sirens and in the light of multicolored fire rockets. The colorful procession unwinds through the streets of the town and then fireworks bring an end to the celebrations.
