Fairs and festivals in Roquetas de Mar
One of the most important religious celebrations is that held in honour of the Virgen del Carmen and Saint Ann, on 25 and 26 July, with a marvellous maritime procession with all the vessels of the area decorated all along the coast. The day ends with games, open-air dances and a great castle of fireworks. On 7 October the Patron Saint´s festivity is celebrated, in honour of the Virgen del Rosario with an open-air dance, a moto vehicle Gymkhana and prizes. Another of the tourist areas of the coast, Aguadulce, celebrates its Patron Saint´s festivity, in honour of the Virgen del Carmen, on 16 July with a peculiar sea-land procession, also with open-air dances and ludic acts.
The night of San Juan (St.John) is celebrated on 23 June, along the whole coast with bonfires that splash the crowded beaches with light and colour.
Easter in Roquetas de Mar has become one of the most important festivities in the Province. The brotherhood of the Virgin de los Dolores stands out due to the artistic quality of its images. On 28 December the traditional festivity of the "Moragas" is celebrated on our beaches, when both our people and visitors get together to enjoy typical grilled fish and meat.
