Bilbon Bizkaia Magazine Nº2 (summer 2022)

Party goes on

From the night of San Juan, 24 June onwards, the nights start to get longer. And the patron saint festivals of virtually all the municipalities of Biscay come together. Whatever the plans that have brought you to these lands, and whatever date you set on the calendar, your accommodation is sure to be just a few kilometers away from the festivities. It could be a day in a remote sea port, or on the shore of a beach, a pilgrimage (“romería”) in front of a small hermitage surrounded by a dozen oak trees on the top of a hill, or a large celebration in an important town. Come and join in.

There will be a popular meal, music, a regatta, stone-lifters, pelota matches, sokatira competitions and a thousand other things. They will provide shade if it is hot and cover if it rains, let you sing with them and teach you two moves of a jota.

When the sun rises, before you realise, you won’t have any strength left. But you won’t want to leave either. And by mid-morning, you’ll be wishing you were back.

Party goes on.
