The Consualia was an annual Roman festival held on either the 21st or 18th of August.

As part of the event, which included games and races, an altar to Consus or Neptunus Equestris (they may have been the same deity) was uncovered in commemoration of Romulus' discovery of the altar buried there. This festival is also connected with the rape of the Sabine Women because it was supposed to have been on the Consualia that the Romans took the Sabine women.
