Spanish Events

There are so many regional and national holidays that there is a festival or fiesta being celebrated somewhere in Spain every month of every year.
Experiencing Spanish fiestas first hand is a great way to immerse yourself in the Spanish culture and to learn about important traditions.

Spanish festivals and holidays are famous around the world. Spain is known for its great quality of life and strong traditions; the spectacular fiestas and celebrations fill the country with a zest for life that visitors can experience in every corner of Spain throughout the year.

Every town, city, and region has its own traditional holiday or fiesta in honor of a patron saint, founder, or important historical event. During these festivals, traditional food is enjoyed and everyone is welcome to join in all of the fiesta events and holiday celebrations.
