Last week in August First week in September Festival in honour of Our Lady of LoretoThis is Javea's main annual festival. The Port of Javea houses a temporary spectator stand which overlooks a small man-made beach. A single firework prompts the release of up to 6 bulls onto the small man-made beach. Locals run around attracting the attention of the bulls. Their intention is to bait the bull to the water's edge and for the bull to fall in the sea. It is rare a bull ends up in the sea, it is usually the locals! A large temporary bar area is set up alongside the bull run where you can enjoy a drink and some freshly cooked sardines while watching the show. Music plays a big part of all the Spanish fiestas and the festival is closed with a firework display in the Port.
