We mentioned earlier last week about the Sitges Wine Festival 2010. The event, which takes place over the weekend, features delicious gourmet food stalls right on the seafront on Saturday and Sunday along with the annual barrel run and trashing of the first grapes on the Sunday Afternoon.
The bears may have left Sitges this year… although there are still quite a few of them still around.. We’re already getting lots of questions about next years festivities, but don’t worry, the dates for next year’s May events have already been confirmed. The 6th international Bears Meeting will take place from the 29th of April to the 2nd of May 2010.
Check out the Bears Events page of Gay Sitges Guide for more details.
If you’re planning to come to Sitges Pride in 2010, then you better start planning now. Its already busy in Sitges in July and this event is expected to attract thousands of visitors from across the world. The Circuit Festival in Barcelona attracted more than 50,000 visitors and Sitges was booked solid in August. Likewise, Barcelona Pride had more than 45,000 attendees.
Sitges expects record numbers. With parades, special concerts, pre-parties, beach parties and more to come, ensure that you get VIP treatment right from the very beginning. We will be launching our VIP packages shortly. For further information or to book your hotel or apartment contact email@example.com or use the contact form.

Don Facundo Bacardí Massó was one of Sitges’ most distinguished citizens, as the founder of Bacardi.
His great-great grandson Facundo Bacardi, the Bacardi chairman, joined Sitges Mayor Jordi Baijet to honour his memory with the unveiling of a statue celebrating his life, success, and connections to Sitges.
Mr. Massó was a merchant born and raised in Sitges who emigrated to Santiago de Cuba in 1830. In 1862, he revolutionised the spirits world with the creation of Bacardi rum, the world’s first light bodied and mixable rum.
The Sitges-inspired sculpture by artist Lorenzo Quinn is entitled “Looking into the Future” and will become a permanent fixture on the town’s seaside promenade, the Paseo Marítimo.
The one-of-a-kind work has a base of solid stone; on top of which is a large steel circle held up by open hands made of bronze and the Bat, the globally recognised symbol of Bacardi, also known symbol of good luck, fortune and family unity.
The base has an embedded plaque with a portrait and explanation of the life and vision of Mr. Massó.
Mr. Quinn created the sculpture using stone from Sitges. The circle symbolises the global dimensions of the brand and the company. The open hands reaching for the sky symbolise letting dreams take flight, with the confidence to succeed.
Of course the perfect places to enjoy a Bacardi Mojito in Sitges are Parrots Pub and Terrace and Marypili. Check out the bars section on Gay Sitges Guide for details.
