Fiestas and special days
In Zarautz, the patron saint festivities in honour of San Pelaio take place the 25th, 26th and 27th of June, and are the most important in our calendar. Drumming parades for both children and adults, giants, masques and groups of friends wearing colourful shirts are the typical things you can see.
In mid-August “Semana Grande” or the Big Week takes place. You can see rowing regattas, fireworks, live concerts...
And the first week of September culminates on the 9th, with Euskal Jaia (Basque Fiesta), a splendid exhibition of local folklore when everybody wears traditional costume.
