The Festes de Sant Julià in Campos is held to celebrate the town’s patron saint and each year more and more activities are added to the programme by the Ajuntament de Campos.
What to expect
The festivities will begin in the evening of Wednesday, January 8 with the celebration of the patrons in which locals sing the “Goigs of Sant Julià” and band sing the Hymn of Campos and cossiers, or local dancers, perform in front of the town hall.
The day of the patrons, January 9, will be celebrated as always with a solemn mass at 10.00h followed by processions, music, dancing and traditional performances by choirs from the local area. Food plays a major part in this festival with street barbecues and local cuisine available throughout the town.
Saturday is children’s day with activities taking place in the Cultural Centre and the Plaza de Can Pere Ignasi. This year, the older generations have put together a memory cycle of life in Campos for the younger residents to understand how the town has changed over the years.
The festival concludes with the opera ‘Tosca Notra’ at 19.00h at the Convent de Sant Francesc de Paula. A donation of €12 is payable to the convent.
