Blog Post COVID-19 Cancellation of Festivals


COVID-19 Cancellation of Festivalsblog image

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 many local fiestas have been cancelled.  It's certainly a different year this year, where usually the planning and excitement build within the communities and holidaymakers, and we experience a coming together in colourful celebration.

At this time, however, we are all asked to social distance and wear a mask when necessary and washing our hands is so important.  If we all adhere to these requests, hopefully by next year our joyful, colourful festivals will be celebrated once more.

Friday 31st July - Sunday 2nd August (to be confirmed)
MARE DE DÉU DEL ANGELES - The fiesta of La Plana
This is a very traditional fiesta which takes place on the plateau of La Plana around the Sanctuario de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles which stores the treasured painting which was found amongst bushes after being thought lost for many years. The fiesta features a procession, community dinner with music and dancing as well as activities for the kids.

Saturday 1st August - Monday 3rd August (to be confirmed)
XÀBIA JAZZ 2020 - The International Summer Music Festival (Cancelled due to COVID-19 health crisis)
The international jazz music festival has become one of the most popular music festivals in the region with an impressive programme of national and international performers from the world of jazz performing to packed houses every night for three nights in the Plaza de la Constitución.
