Coming to the festivities in Es Canar?

If you’re spending your holidays in Ibiza and at Hotel Ánfora during the first half of July, don’t miss the local fiestas in Es Canar in honour of Saint Christopher. It’s a great opportunity to learn about Ibizan traditions and join the local festivities.


Next July 10th, on Saint Christopher’s Day (Sant Christófol in Catalan), the holiday village of Es Canar will be pulling out its party wear as a tribute to their patron saint, as it’s been doing ever since it was no more than a small fishing village. The big day is July 10th, but there are festivities the days surrounding this date, so the festive atmosphere lasts several days.

Sant Cristófol Fiestas in Es Canar 2024

July 10th will be the day for the traditional events, like the traditional cart parade at lunchtime, the paella competition and the traditional Ibizan folk dances (ball pagès) in the evening (9.30 p.m.) Besides these events, there are other activities, including the Ibizan crafts market, the outdoor concert at 10 p.m. and the fireworks at midnight for a grand send-off of Sant Cristófol’s Day.

During the days leading up to the day of Sant Cristòfol, Es Canar hosts other events like musical gigs and activities for children. If you’re staying in Ibiza during the Es Canar fiestas, ask our front desk about the events calendar and join the festivities!
