Covid 19 Update
The council have stated that official events such as the parades and dances will no longer take place. The “new” Fiesta Mayor event schedule will be announced in the coming weeks and will respect social-distancing requirements.
Fiesta Mayor is when the town of Sitges hosts its annual festival in celebration of the patron saint, Sant Bartolomeu. The Fiesta Mayor includes music, dance and parades, including a spectacular firework display which can be seen from all over the town, or, if you are lucky enough to own a boat, from out at sea.
