Festa major 2018of sant julià de lòria

The Festa Major of Sant Julià de Lòria is hosting five days of festivities with a diverse programme, devised for everyone of all ages: magic shows, entertainment, lots of kids’ competitions and recreational activities such as the “Water Toboggan”. Also standing out is the “Vintage Fair”, which will open its doors on Saturday 28th, to offer its avant-garde handicrafts. On Monday 30th, you can watch the traditional dances, all nationally symbolic, such as the Cerdà, the Marratxa, the Dama Blanca or the Passa.

However, music forms a core part of the celebrations. The Festa Major of Sant Julià 2018 will have you dancing every night with groups and orchestras such as Cadillac, Hotel Cochambre, the cover songs of Guateque or The Swing Girls; rock group Buhos and the Itaca Band; as well as summer classics such as Georgie Dann. And on the final night, the energetic Macaco.
