Celebrations


FIESTA DEL CARMEN - (16th July)
Just like all the costal towns, Empuriabrava marina celebrates the Fiesta del Carmen on 16th July to worship the Virgin of Carmen. The procession along the Canals, the traditional sardinada and the large firework castle are the most symbolic events of this festival which has become a great tradition in our municipality.


FIESTA DE LA CANDELERA - (2nd February)
This is the local winter festival. The activities held are very varied, but those events organised by the different entities within the programme are worth a particular mention which, together with the sardanas and the dance, are a traditional element of the patron saintĺs day festivities.


One of the most symbolic events of the festival is the religious candle blessing and singing of the verses of the Virgin of the Candelera at the solemn mass held in her honour.

 
FIESTA DE SAN LORENZO - (10th August)
On 10th August, the municipality celebrates
San Lorenzoĺs day, who is the joint patron saint. This festival is experienced and enjoyed by a large number of citizens and visitors that, despite falling during the height of summer, do not want to miss such a special day.
The Fiesta de
San Lorenzo is celebrated to the full through all the traditional as well the more recently incorporated recreational and cultural festivities.
