Festivals and Fairs

Festivals and Events

There are plenty of festivals and events taking place throughout the year in the Priorat: "Fiestas Mayores", religious processions, traditional dancing... Most festivals take place during the summer months in July and August mainly. These "fiestas" tend to include dancing, traditional dances called "Sardanes" and activities and games for children.

It is worth mentioning a special day which comes at the end of a Fiesta Mayor, which is the "Day of the Lazy". It is a day where there are games for children based on popular culture and folklore.

Religious processions and gatherings often take place in the village hermitage which are scattered around the countryside, usually in places of outstanding natural beauty. If you are interested in the more important events of the Priorat festival calendar, there are four main dates worth remembering:

- Nearest weekend to Saint Anthony's Day,  17th January: "L’Encamisada" in Falset
- Second Sunday in March: Festival of the Omelette in its own sauce in Ulldemolins. 
- First weekend of May: Wine Fair in Falset

L'Encamisada

The Festival of the "Encamisada" is celebrated in Falset the weekend closest to Saint Anthony's Day, 17th January. It is linked to a popular legend which dates back to the 18th century when the men of the village took part in an "encamisada" against the invading French. An "encamisada" is a rapid attack at night to catch the enemy unawares and as camouflage, they were dressed only in their shirt-sleeves ("camisa" means shirt in Catalan). [read more]

Festes Majors

La majoria de les festes majors tenen lloc als mesos d’estiu, juliol i agost, principalment. Festes que solen incloure ball, sardanes i actes per a la mainada. Cal destacar-hi una jornada especial que té lloc en molts pobles, el “dia dels dropos”, últim dia de la festa major, on solen dur-se a  terme les “cucanyes”, jocs per a la canalla, d’arrel popular.

També són molt típics els aplecs a les ermites, molt nombroses a la comarca i situades en indrets de gran bellesa.
