Festival de Sardane Céret
21st July - 23rd July
FESTIVAL DE SARDANES
Witness the impressive spectacle of the sardane competitions in the Céret arena, with ‘colles’ (sardane dance troupes) from all over Catalonia, dressed in traditional costume and strutting their stuff around the streets of old Céret in between competitions.
Music, dancing, fun and traditional Catalan summer entertainment in the boulevards with brass bands, gegants, grallers i cap grossos, processions through the streets……
As you see from the poster on the left, the festival has been going for many years, 60 to be precise, and this year, the big birthday bonanza promises to be one hell of a show!
