Remember, because Sant Jordi Falls on a Thursday and as it is a bank holiday… this weekend kicks off on a Thursday Night, so its a great weekend to come to Sitges to soak up some sun and a party atmosphere. Check out out our bars section and pay a visit to our premium bar advertisers, who support this Gay Sitges Guide, year-in, year-out.

On Thursday the 23rd of April, the eve of Sant Jordi, a special fair will take place on Psg de la Ribera on Sitges beachfront, where you can buy books and roses for you loved ones in honour of the ancient traditions of Sant Jordi!
If you’re not familiar with the tradition, check out Gay Sitges Guide’s previous year’s coverage of the event here.
A reminder from yesterday’s post… The Barcelona Circuit Party takes place from the 1st to the 8th of August 2009! If you didn’t get to any of the events last year.. then check out their full listing on Gay Barcelona 4 u here.
Sitges makes the perfect base for Barcelona in the month of August. The beaches provide all the relaxation you need for the day before hitting the city at night. Barcelona is just 30 mins away by train. And the closing party of the entire event takes place in Sitges, at our very own Beach Party… on Sunday the 8th of August.
If you want an idea of what it might be like, check out our gallery of last year’s water park party which also takes place this year!
