Fiestas Elorrio

These festivities take their name and derive from an 18th century agricultural produce and livestock fair. A 6-day fair was originally organised on 27 August to 1 September 1751.

 

It was repeated the following year and extended to the Sunday following 1 September, and has been held ever since.
