FIESTA PROGRAMME - SAN SEBASTIAN 2018
Festivities celebrating the patron saint of Xàbia include bull-running around the church square

Tuesday 16th January 2018

JAVEA NEWS | San Sebastian

Hot on the heels of the celebrations of San Antonio Abad come the festivities which honour San Sebastián, the patron saint of Xàbia, which takes place this weekend between Friday 19th January to Sunday 21st January with a programme that includes bull-running, activities for the children, a classic cycle race and late night open-air discos for those with a bit of stamina.

For many years the celebrations passed by barely noticeable by much of the population of the town and it was only the re-introduction of the running of the bulls around the very heart of the historic centre in 2012 that hauled it back into the consciousness of many people. Like it or loathe it, the bulls remain a popular event in the festive calendar drawing many people into the town from across the region and indeed the bull-running of San Sebastián inaugurates the taurino season in the Provincia de Alicante.

The full schedule for the festivities is outlined below. Be aware that the church square and lower square through the archway and down the steps will be enclosed with metal cages throughout the weekend. The arena will be opened in the periods between the taurino events.
