The most important fiesta in Galicia!! Vidal 2015

 

 

 

Vidal fiesta

In September each year, there is the Vidal fiesta. This takes place on the opposite side of the valley to Granero del Burro so is just a short walk or an even shorter drive away. It is usually on the 3rd Saturday in September so the 2015 fiesta should take place on the 19th September 2015.

It follows the usual format of rural fiestas - drinks at lunchtime for the 'hora de vermuth' (Martini hour!!) and then a short burst of music from the band and a bit of dancing. In 2014, a group called Melodías were the headliners. There were very slick and created a nice blend of brass, vocal and dance.

Everyone then heads of for a long lunch and things don't get started again until 11.00pm. Melodías kicked off the evening again and were backed up by a local disco. Both do a couple of sets so things usually wrap up between 4 and 5 in the morning. Everyone is very friendly so if you book your holiday to coincide with the fiesta, you will be made to feel very welcome

The weather the last 2 years has been fantastic so you can use the bread oven area for your lunch and eat outside. You also get a good view of all the activity on the hillside opposite!!
