No bonfires, barbeques, or camping on the beach for June 2021
If you are in Costa Tropical during the month of June, you may hear people speaking of Fiesta de San Juan or Noche de San Juan. You likely assumed it was some sort of celebration, but it may also leave you with several questions. Who is San Juan? What is the fiesta de San Juan in celebration of? Why do some people say it is June 23rd and other people say it is June 24th? Let us help you figure it all out!
Tradition, processions, remembrance, commemoration, brotherhoods, sisterhoods, candles, floats, a variety of costumes and more, are all part of what you will experience during AlmuñécarSemana Santa (Holy Week)! This usually spans over 8 days, with multiple processions through town during the day or night. For 2021, it will again be a little different from the normal week. Keep reading to see what will be happening in 2021.
Normally we have costumes, masquerade, parades, singing, dancing, music, activities, food & drink. 2021 will be slightly different.
We will keep the information on what you would normally experience when you celebrate La Herradura & Almuñécar Carnival! The parades begin at one location and end at the party event locations.

The holiday season is upon us and there is so much going on! It is magical to experience (Navidad) Christmas in Almuñécar, La Herradura & the surrounding areas.

Food, drinks, activities, procession, and fireworks are what you will get when you celebrate the Fiestas de La Carrera Almuñécar! This usually includes 2-3 days of activities in the neighborhood of La Carrera, near the old town Church. There are no festivities in 2020.
Who loves good food? Yes, you do! Every year Almuñécar holds a foodie event called the Feria Gastronomica in Majuelo Park. In 2020, the standard dates, location, and style was altered due to Covid, but it is happening! Be prepared to sample the delicious food from each of the stalls and also partake in a few beverages as well. It isn’t just about food and drinks though. No, you will also be very entertained and this is just one of the annual events which are the sign that summer is on the way.
Fiestas in the streets of Almuñécar & La Herradura during the Cruces de Mayo. With elaborate displays of flowers, crosses, lights, decorations, fiestas, and pop-up bars, in the alleys of the old town in Almuñécar & La Herradura. Be prepared for a few days and nights with displays, food, drink, and a great atmosphere. (The 2021 celebration will be modified).
