Upon the arrival of summer, Xàbia celebrates the long-awaited Bonfire Monuments of San Juan 2022. From the 10th until 24th of June, the streets and squares of Xàbia Historical City Centre will be full of music and local color to commemorate these participatory and traditional holiday festivities.

 

Festivities

The festivity program is diverse and includes, among others, parades, musical performances, concerts, flower offerings, etc. There are popular events such as the running of young bulls and the "correfocs" (firecracker parades), as well as the traditional "Nit dels Focs" fireworks display, which is a magical and mysterious night with its unique Mediterranean character which takes place throughout the unique Xàbia Historical City Centre. Its playful nature, symbolism, tradition and roots have caused this holiday festivity to be declared a Holiday of Tourist Interest by the Valencian Regional Government.

The festivities conclude on the night of June 24th upon the burning of the bonfire monument with a spectacular pyro-musical fireworks display.
