Events

Donkey Palio

Palio degli Asini Alba

4th October — Prologue to the Fair, the donkey race recalls the ancient rivalry between the city of Alba and his neighbour Asti. The story begins in 1275, when the two cities were at war. Asti celebrated his victory running a horses Palio under the walls of the enemy city, but the people of Alba – to mock the rival – decided to run one with donkeys. This event is commemorated every year the first Sunday of October.

It will be held at 8 a.m., behind closed doors, to avoid the inevitable risks arising from the assemblage of spectators.

The Palio will be available in live streaming on the corporate channels of the Fair Organization, the Municipality of Alba and the Giostra delle Cento Torri (100 Towers Carousel), to broadcast an exciting event that will see the nine city boroughs compete for the much coveted drape that will be awarded to the winner of the race.
