Santo Tomás Fair in Bilbao 2023
Bilbao is transformed into a great festival that lasts for 24 hours every 21st December.
The Arenal and Casco Viejo are filled with stalls selling talo (traditional corn bread), txakoli, cider and roast chorizo.
Local producers fill the Arenal and Plaza Nueva with more than 300 stalls selling capons and other farm animals, rosquillas (traditional Spanish doughnuts), cheeses, home-baked bread, vegetables, beans, honey, wine, chestnuts and winter fruits.
Bands of trikitilaris (accordion players), otxotes (a cappella singers), txistularis and bagpipers perform.
A month and a half before, on November 11th, this great celebration is preceded by the Feria de San Martín, in the Jardines de Albia area.
Gastronomy, sport, landscape, nature: the perfect combination for autumn in Orduña!
Music and a good atmosphere always accompany these events.
Music, competitions of all kinds and spectacular games of cesta punta in the Jaia-Alai.
