In Passignano itself: the "Palio delle barche", a unique, spectacular boat race ranked as one of Umbria's four top events, and the wonderful "notte bianca" in August when the whole town keeps partying through the night.
The young musicians' Festival and the "festa dei barbari", pirate festival, held in nearby Castel Rigone are also worthy of mention.
