Sugar night

October 31 - November 2

Locandina notte di zucchero

The “Feast of the Dead” in Sicily is a very heartfelt event, dating back to the tenth century, it is celebrated on November 2nd. It is said that on the night between 1 and 2 November the deceased visit their loved ones still alive, bringing gifts and sweets to the children.

An opportunity to commemorate and remember loved ones, but also a way to teach the little ones that one should not be afraid of death. To keep alive this ancient and identity tradition ten years ago, “Sugar Night” was born, conceived by Giusi Cataldo with the aim of preserving this day of celebration and memory that at a certain point risked getting lost because it was supplanted by the more global Halloween party that has nothing to do with our precious cultural roots.

Also this year “Notte di Zucchero” is supported by the Metropolitan City of Palermo, and enjoys (since 2019) the twinning with Mexico and more precisely with “El dia de los muertos” in Mexico City, where that of the Dead is one very heartfelt and participatory party just like in Sicily. For this reason, every year the festival is colored and animated by educational workshops, theater, music, songs, parades and video art.
