Fancy Dress Party

Benidorm is a place where partying and entertainment are non-stop, as thousands of its visitors who arrive from all around the world well know. The Benidorm Fiestas attracts a lot of international coverage and every year creates a buzz among those who attend. Attending the fiesta is being part of a unique event which takes place every twelve months and offers all kinds of fun. Ithonours the Virgin of Suffrage and St. James the Apostle, the patron saint of Benidorm. The party stretches six days where there are activities for all ages from football, live music, fishing competitions to cultural events and processions where the habitants of Benidorm show their devotion to the patron saint and virgin of the town. It takes place the second Friday in November & is held until the following Wednesday, culminating in a spectacular firework display.

Although the fiestas are always enjoyed as though every day was the first, most guests can’t wait for the moment when the fiesta ends. The reason for this is that when the Benidorm Fiesta officially ends, one of the most awaited and fun event of the year is held: The Fancy Dress Party.
