Great Week

During the week of the 15th of August, the Virgin's Day, this festivity is held combining the International Firework Competition right in the middle of La Concha Bay.

The traditional cannon shot fired is the starting point of the festivity and takes place at the Alderdi Eder gardens at 19.00 hours

One of the most important elements of the Semana Grande is, without a doubt, the International Fireworks Contest, which includes the participation of companies from different parts of the world.

Also, music has an important place in the festival. Great musical stars gather in the capital of Gipuzkoa.

As far as sports is concerned, it is worth mentioning the classic swimming crossing from Getaria to San Sebastian, horse races, the beach-volleyball tournament and "herri-kirolak" exhibitions (Basque rural sports).

Furthermore, and like in previous years, children will have at their disposal workshops, games, gigantes and cabezudos parades, disco, toros de fuego (fire bulls), and so on.

Irish soldiers in the British army held New York's first St.
Patrick's Day parade in 1762 and the holiday” was celebrated a few years later in New York pubs and taverns.
