San Isidro fiesta in Rojales
May 19 - May 20
This weekend Rojales is celebrating the popular fiesta and pilgrimage of San Isidro Labrador. The Town Hall is expecting over 4,000 people to come to El Corral natural area to join in with the activities in honour of the patron saint of farmers.
To ensure everyone’s safety, there will be a team of almost 50 Local Police, Civil Protection volunteers, fire fighters and medics.
Saturday’s activities include a “Holi” festival which consists of throwing coloured powders into the air and dancing to music, turning everyone into rainbows, a concert by the band “Romántico Latino Blanco y Negro” and a disco.
The big day of the pilgrimage is Sunday the 20th, for which the Town Hall will give all the participants a hat, a cane with rosemary and a commemorative neckerchief. There will also be petanca, musical parades, flamenco dancing, traditional games like sack races and the spoon game, and bouncy castles for little children.
There will also be free paella for everyone and a free bus service to El Recorral from Rojales town and Ciudad Quesada.
Here is the programme of events:
