One Mile and Sycamore Field in Bidwell Park
Chico Palio is the kickoff event for Artoberfest. The event is community based, with “palio” referring to the Italian word of competition between neighbors. Instead of racing real horses like in the Palio di Siena in Italy, community members create and race horse sculptures made of papier-mache, recycled materials and more. It's a time for arts, culture and nonprofit organizations to come together to celebrate community and let people know what they do and how they serve our local citizenry.
