Santiago / Day of the Blusa and Neska
The main festivities of Vitoria-Gasteiz, in honour of the “Virgen Blanca” patron saint of Vitoria-Gasteiz, are celebrated from 4th to 9th August, although this has its prelude on 25th July, “Santiago Day”, with the celebration of the “Day of the Blusa and Neska“. This is the day when the people of Vitoria go up the Cuesta de San Francisco to traditionally purchase garlic and the troupes of Blusas and Neskas conduct the first parade of the year.
The programme for the festival is completed with an agricultural and livestock fair, festivities, rural sports, music, etc.
