Two remarkable festivals are celebrated in Marsala.
The Holy Thursday procession has been celebrated in town for centuries now and has become one of the most expected annual celebrations. Some actors re-enact the stages Jesus Christ suffered before being crucified and children represent saints wearing colourful costumes. A colourful picturesque festival which takes place on the Thursday before Easter.
The Marsala Jazz Festival, which takes place in the historic centre of Marsala in July, receives support from Marsala producers and is more and more appealing for celebrated artists.
