Ibiza Fiestas 2009: San Jose

The third of Ibiza's big fiestas starts this month in the island's mountain village of San Jose

The third of Ibiza's big fiestas starts this month in the island's mountain village of San Jose. As with other fiestas, there's lots of sport and cultural events going on as well as the big concerts and fireworks. We've picked out the activities more suited to an international audience which nearly all take place in the centre of the village.

The great thing about the fiesta in San Jose is that lots of schools and organisations raise money for themselves by lining both sides of the main street with stalls selling, all sorts of products and produce – home made food, cakes and wines for example – at bargain prices.

Here's what's happening.

07/3 16.00: Duathlon at Cala Bassa
12/3 21.00: Wine tasting in Es Galliner Bar
13/3 21.00: Rock a s'Olivera – Rock bands at Raco Verd Bar
14/3 12.00: Flower Power 0-12 – mini hippie festival in the church square
14/3 16.00: bike race to Sa Capelleta
