The festivities in honor of St. Stephen, in Taurisano, are double during the year: in the canonical date of December 26 and on August 2 and 4. During the summer, the celebrations begin in the afternoon with the holy mass and solemn procession that leads the statue of the patron saint through the town's main streets, all decorated with lights. Back at the church, a spectacular torchlight welcomes the return of procession. On the other days of celebration, masses and band concerts are held. The celebrations end with the fireworks show.
