FIESTAS DEL PORTITXOL - A CELEBRATION OF TRADITION
The programme features a performance from actress-comedienne María Juan

Monday 7th August 2017

JAVEA NEWS | Fiesta Portitxol

The traditional fiestas of Portitxol take place this weekend, the eighth edition of the revived celebrations which combine the best of Valencian traditions and culture with music, dancing and games. As always, the festivities will be taking place in the grounds of the grand farmhouse opposite the stone cross of Portitxol which overlooks the island of the same name.

Forget grand displays of pyrotechnics and huge float processions with cascades of boiled sweets. The fiestas of Portitxol are all about returning to the roots of the fiesta, bringing together a community for an evening of music, dancing and dining followed by a morning of traditional games for all after a filling brunch of sardines. Originally held in honour of San Martín after which the nearby cape was named before their demise in the late 1950s, the revived celebrations are all about celebrating Valencian tradition and culture with the precious Valencian language dominant throughout the weekend.

Sunday 12th August
19:30 - Parade with improvised singing through Portitxol with snacks for all afterwards.
20:30 - Performance from actress-comedienne Maria Juan, followed by dancing in the street organised by the Grup de Danses del Portitxol and the Colla del Portitxol dolzainers and drummers.
22:30 - Communal Dinner, bring your own food, drinks available at the bar.
23:30 - Dancing to music provided by Orquesta Diamonds.
