Fiesta Ibiza: San Bartolome

It's not unusual in Ibiza for our towns to have not one, but two big celebrations

It's not unusual in Ibiza for our towns to have not one, but two big celebrations a year. Santa Eulalia does it, and so does San Antonio, with the fiesta of San Bartolome starting this month.

The council have splashed out €160,000 on fun, games and entertainment over the next three weeks, 30% less than last year, but with no reduction in quality!

Let's have a look at what's in store
14/08, 21.30 - Fiesta Namasté, hippy fiesta in the church square
15/08, 22.00 - San Bartolome Dance, dance music in Cala Gracio
16/08, 21.00 – Concert by the San Antonio Municipal Orchestra in the church square
21/08, 22.30 - Body and Souls present 'feelings' - acrobats, dancers and singers in the Fountains Square
23/08, 22.00 – Rock concert with Rosendo in Cervantes college
24/08, 08.00 – Fireworks and chocolate in the Plaza de España.
24/08, 23.30 - Concert by Mar del Este in the Fountains Square.
24/08, 00:00 – Fireworks display which can be seen all round the bay.
30/08, 19.00 - Country market, melon tasting, equestrian display, folk dancing sardine BBQ and live music with Project Mut in the Fountains square.

05/09, 21.30 - Rock with U2 tribute band Achtung Band, Es Puet beach

There'll also be lots of sporting activities and competitions going on throughout the period – if you're a good swimmer you just might win a lobster if you're first over the line in the race to San Antonio's aquarium near Cala Gracio on 30th August.

Have a great fiesta if you're here, and remember, you can see the fireworks display at the windmill near the Hotel Hawaii form miles around on 24th at midnight.
