Fiestas in Xativa

August is a festive month in Xàtiva. It starts with the celebrations of its patron saints, on the 1st with Saint Feliu and on the 5th with Our Lady. But really, the majority of the festival interest is concentrated on the Fair. The Fair of Xàtiva is one of the oldest markets, authorised by King James I in 1250. Around August 15th a great number of cultural, theatrical and musical events take place. There are also fun and games for all ages which complement the more commercial and more expected aspect: hundreds of stalls and salespeople concentrated in the L'Albereda promenade. Nearby, in a popular enclosure, there is a large horse fair with competitions. In the evenings there is Bull running and at night there are open air discos, theatre and fireworks competitions
