The most important bullfighting event of the year in Alicante, the Levantine fair that marks the beginning of the summer.
Las Hogueras de San Juan of Alicante, are celebrated this year from June 16th to 23th in the Levantine city of Alicante. The festivities are the most important in the province and have been declared of International Tourist Interest since 1983 and of Cultural Interest since 2014.
Las Hogueras have their origin in the longest day of the year that the farmers used to harvest the crops, and the shortest night to celebrate around bonfires. From 1928 and thanks to José María Py, they were instituted as official festivities, becoming a tourist attraction and following the example of Valencia and its Fallas.
The Alicante Bullfighting Fair will be held from June 16th to 23th (to be confirmed). A season of 6 bullfighting events that… You can’t miss!
