San Antonio’s Sant Bartomeu Fiestas 2016.
Sant Bartomeu is San Antonio’s patron saint, and the fiestas in his honour run from 18th August to 4th September.
During that time there will be all manner of arts, dance, music, sports and cultural activities and events, with some geared specifically to children.
Friday September 2nd and Saturday September 3rd – annual Romans V Carthaginians fiesta
Friday 2nd from 6pm-2am including the inauguration of the fiesta with kids events, music, and DJ’s
Saturday 3rd 6pm on S’Arenal beach for the main event as the Romans and Carthaginians battle it out with the much loved tomato fight scheduled for 8pm
Sunday September 4th – Holi festival of colour
This year’s Saint Bartholomew (Sant Bartomeu) fiesta in San Antonio includes a Holi Festival of Colour for the first time. This seems an appropriate inclusion as Bartomeu is credited as taking Christianity to India. 7pm at Ses Variades
