Every Year on the 25th August, Sabinillas celebrates its patron saint with a day of processions, music and partying . This year’s fiesta falls on a Sunday. The day will begin, like every other local festival with rockets being let off at 8am and a march through the street of Sabinillas by the town band.
From 11.30am there will be activities and competitions for the children in La Plaza de Cali ( in front of the statue on the seafront) . There will be children’s entertainers and prizes for the competition winners.
Later in the afternoon, there will be a holy mass in the church in Sabinillas in honour of the patron saint with singing from Sabinillas church choir. After the mass the Saint’s statue is taken from the church and is carried in procession through the streets of Sabinillas accompanied by the town band and the Feria queens and princesses. It’s quite a spectacle with many of the townsfolk dressed in traditional costume.
The evenings events take place in plaza Vincente Espinel (the main square behind the taxi rank). Starting at 10pm, there will be childrens entertainment as well as a live band with music and dancing way into the early hours…
