The third Sunday of September in Acuto is the setting for a country festival with horses and riders competing in a ring race. The competition takes place in the municipal stadium and the event is also known as the Palio delle Contrade and Country Festival because the challengers are representing the different areas of the village.
The day is enriched by food and wine stands with musical bands that perform on stage.
