Take part in the parish’s most popular event!

As is customary, the Escaldes-Engordany Pro-Tourism Union (UPTEE) has devised an activity programme to suit everyone, with events such as the market, food trucks, children’s activities, and plenty of music every night. The music for the evening and night dances is provided by bands such as Maravella, Aquarium and Swing Latino. There will also be DJ sessions, with the “40 Classics on the Road” show and “Va Parir Tour”. A highlight for the youngsters is the concert by Miki Nuñez, who will close the Festa Major on the night of 26 July.
