Patron Saint festival returns to town popular with expats on Spain’s Costa Blanca


SAN FULGENCIO will be celebrating its saints’ celebrations this week, a year after the Covid ban.

The town is home to La Marina Urbanisation, one of the largest ethnic groups in Spain.

The festivities will continue to drive the public transport system but the 8-day program kicks off on Sunday, January 16th.

The local mayor, José Sampere, was pleased to announce this, following recent concerns that the rise of Covid charges could reduce celebrations.

He added, “This year we have decided to continue with what is happening outdoors, following all the safety measures.”

Continuation: “Ceremonies such as the blessing of bread and meat, as in the case of the festival, will be repeated, as will the communion meal in the El Oasis region.”

Sampere also confirmed, “The presence of Civil Protection volunteers from San Fulgencio and the Local Police is planning, to ensure that those who come follow all these instructions so that all are interested and well off.”

Josefina Sampere, Councilor of Fiestas, described the event calendar, starting with the “San Fulgencio Party.”

He added: “There will be firefighting and bells ringing in the morning, as well as demonstrations of the San Fulgencio Musical Union in the city streets from 10am.

At noon, a mass in honor of the saint (San Fulgencio) will be held, led by the parish priest, as well as the choir of the Virgen del Remedio.

A pilgrimage to the saints will begin at 8pm, and firefighters will be removed from the Cardenal Belluga Stadium at the end of the day.

On Monday 17, a white co-patron party (San Antonio Abad) coincides with a local holiday, with another parade starting at 10am, fireworks and bells ringing.

The traditional blessing of the bread will take place at 12 o’clock in the parish.

The brothers’ meal takes place a week later in the ‘El Oasis’ nature reserve, another notable event where Town Hall offers a lunch break for attendees.

Those wishing to participate in the diet, are required to register with the municipalities for one year, usually at the municipal offices before Tuesday 18 January.

Events honoring San Fulgencio and San Antonio Abad culminate in a religious ceremony to commemorate the deceased’s death, which takes place on Monday, January 24 at the parish church, from 6.30pm.
