Livestock Fair and Romería at the Fiestas de San Antonio Abad in Buenavista del Norte

The last Sunday in January, this year, Sunday 27 January 2019, sees Buenavista del Norte host its annual Romería country and livestock fair in honour of San Antonio Abad (St Anthony the Abbot).

On Sunday morning at 11am there will be mass in the Church of Nuestra Señora de Los Remedios, after which the icon of San Antonio Abad will be taken in procession to the fairs enclosure for the formal blessing of the livestock.

Also from 11am, around 500 animals (goats, cows, horses) will gather at the fair enclosure in the Urbanización Las Marinas.

At 2pm, the Romería commences its journey through the main streets, ending at the Plaza de Los Remedios, followed by the traditional Labourers’ Dance with Orquesta Teymar.
