The traditional procession of the Virgen del Carmen,
escorted by sailors, means in summer the beginning
of a wide range of festivities that ends in September
with the Fair of Nuestra Señora de las Virtudes,
patroness of the village. The deeply-rooted Romeria
de San Sebastián (pilgrimage to and festivities
at the local shrine of St. Sebastián) takes
place in January 20th and is followed by the Carnival,
Easter Week and the Crosses of May, filing the streets
of this town of rich Muslim heritage with wonderful
aromas and colour.
Tuna Week in June, the Colorado Spring Festival in which horses and gastromy take a lead role, and the Hogueras de San Juan fill out Conil de la Frontera's very comple calendar of festivities.
