FIESTAS IN JAVEA - XABIA 2017
Fiesta Programme for "Fogueres de Sant Joan" - Festival of San Juan - 9th June until 24th June 2017

This popular fiesta enjoys the 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" (bullrunning), 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 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.
