From August 21 to 27 Sant Bartomeu, Festival of Sitges

One of the most popular holidays in Sitges is the festival which is held from August 21 to 27, which is in memory of Sant Bartomeu pattern and Santa Tecla. The programming of the festival will start on August 20 with the reading of the Proclamation, by the writer and literature professor, Xavier Gimeno. The next day (August 21) there will be a concert by Blaumut and Els Catarres, people who play pop rock in the Catalan music scene.

The most important folk shows of the Sitges Festival to honor the patron of Sitges will be held on August 23 and 24. For over 36 hours, there will be dances in different parades through the streets of Sitges.

The crowded event, which brings together thousands of spectators, will be the Castle Fireworks. The fireworks show takes place on August 23 at 23h.

On June 5, 1991 la fiesta mayor was declared as a traditional festival, because Sitges has been able to keep this festival as one of the most important shows which reflects their cultural identity.

During the holidays there are several celebrations that include the aspect of religion and secular. Note that among the celebrations there are several popular dances and other activities which create an extensive itinerary.

The party is definitely a great tourist attraction as it involves a lot of history. Sitges is also one of the few towns in Catalonia that today celebrates religious processions in memory of the festival.
