There is practically no month of the year in which a holiday linked to the entire town, a neighborhood or a street is not celebrated in Denia. As a common denominator among them we would find the constant presence of music on the street, the smell and sound of gunpowder in impressive “mascletaes” or “castells de focs” and the performance of acts intended for all ages.
The most notable parties for their participation, programming and impact in the city are:
The Fallas. They end on March 19 and, although there are three big days, they fill the streets of Denia practically for a week with attractive Fallas monuments. The “mascletaes” and the “castells de focs” are acts that especially attract visitors due to their power and color. The music bands and brass bands animate the parade of the falleros throughout the city practically at all hours, the culminating moment being the “cremà”, on the night of March 19, when the fire became the protagonist.
At the beginning of July the Patron Saint Festivities are held, 8 days with a very wide and varied program: concerts, cucañas, popular meals, festivals, children’s theater, “correfocs”. Particularly noteworthy are the famous “bous a la mar”, a unique bullfighting show declared a Festival of National Tourist Interest, and the beautiful and cheerful floats that on the last Saturday of the festival animate the crowded streets where they parade.
Between August 14 and 16 the Moors and Christians Festival is celebrated in honor of San Roc. Once again gunpowder and music are the protagonists, this time setting the rhythm of the numerous “filaes”. The most striking event is the gala parade, which fills the streets with onlookers ready to enjoy the spectacular and colorful of the beautiful costumes and luxurious troupes.
