The Hogueras de San Juan Festival
From 20 to 29 June

The Hogueras de San Juan Festival is the biggest festival for the city, and has been accredited as being of International Tourist Interest. The festival originates from the tradition of burning old junk for the arrival of the summer solstice. More than 200 paper mache effigies are constructed and placed around the city. 

These effigies are then burnt in bonfires on the night of the 24th of June in a spectacular event known as the ''Cremà'', and the fire is then put out by the fire brigade during the ''Banyà''. Different events are held throughout the festivial period including firework displays and parades, the most important being the flower offering parade to honor the city´s Patron, la Virgen del Remedio.

Feast in honour to Saint Nicholas of Bari
6 December

Accoring to the legend San Nicolás left Alicante with gifts for children in the Netherlands; so each year, on the 6th of December, the Patron passes through the old town on a white horse and gives out presents to the children. The children follow him throughout the city blowing whistles, accompanied by important figures of the festival, including the Bellea del Foc (the queen of festivals in Alicante) with her maids of honour, as well as other members of the Festival of San Juan, Easter Festivals, and the Moors and Christians festival.   

On the evening of the 6th of December, another parade is held in honour of the Moors and Christians festival, which includes colourful 'filaes' and the Moors and Christians from all over the city, wearing eye-catching costumes and playing festive music.

You'll definitely get into the Christmas spirit while you learn Spanish in Alicante!
