Girona: What’s on in June

If you’ve got post-Temps-de-Flors blues, do not fear; Girona has got yet more cultural titbits lined up for you in June …

Sant Joan

The tradition of celebrating the shortest night of the year is taken seriously here.  And as with all originally religious celebrations in Catalonia, what better way to celebrate than with a party?  The day of Sant Joan (St. John) is celebrated with bonfires, fireworks and fiestas.  Head to Barcelona or the beach or simply enjoy the festivities here, in Girona.

  • Night-time, 23rd June

Beer Festival

If you went to the wine festival, you’ll know that this is definitely worth going to!  Soak up the atmosphere along with beer and tapas.

  • At the junction next to Correos by Placa Independencia
  • Thurs. 8th and Fri. 9th June: 18hr – 24hr
  • Sat. 10th June: 12hr – 24hr
  • Concerts: 20.30hr every day
