Javea Fogueres de Sant Joan 2020

Here is the 2019 Fiesta Programme for the Fogueres de Sant Joan Fiesta (Festival of San Juan) - the 2020 programme will be available a few weeks before the Fiesta

This popular Javea Fiesta enjoys maximum participation from the town’s inhabitants who belong to neighbourhood associations called “peñas” and all fill the streets to participate in the traditional Bous al Carrer (Bull Running), parades with carriages, flower offerings, firework displays, etc.

The "Hogueras” make playful reference to current events in the town which pay homage to the ancestral tradition which involved burning old junk on the 23rd of June (the "Nit dels Focs") with the magical goal of purifying the body and soul prior to the Summer Solstice.

“Els focs de Sant Joan” (St. John’s Fires) which decorate the town’s roundabouts are small bonfires over which the citizens jump one by one, decorated with garlands and flower decorations which are burned once the last fires have been jumped. Finally on the 24th of June, the monuments are burned in celebration of St. John's holiday to conclude the festivities.

The 2019 Fiesta Programme is provided below.
