To get the year off to a great start, 20th January sees the people of San Sebastian throw themselves into celebrating the Day of San Sebastián, with the famous Tamborrada drumming event that resounds throughout the city for 24 hours. Tradition and cuisine come together in this festival where the famous gastro-societies open their doors to the public.
And if that whets your appetite for traditional cuisine, what better than a juicy steak in a cider house or a glass of txakoli with anchovies as January sees the start of the cider and txakoli seasons.
- The txakoli season starts (Getaria – 17th of January)
- The Donostia music documentary film festival ‘Dock of the Bay’
- Cross Internacional Donostia
- Day of the Bertso
