The Fairs and Festivals of San Narcís
The fairs and festivals are celebrated in Girona during the week between on October 21 to November 1.
The 29 October is dedicated to Saint Narcis, this is the pattern of the city. The fairs start with a cercavila (tour that is done to the people before the speech) and begin speech from the balcony of the council of the city.
The day of Saint Narcís is held a Mass dedicated to the saint in the Church of Saint Feliu in Girona. In the devesa park there are all the ‘barrques’ (a place where the people drink beers, whisky, etc.) in the fairs also are concerts and musicals, trade show displays and several shows.
Over time, the festival of Saint Narcís has became in a festival of all the nearby villages and it has lost this character traditional
