May - June
The Festa Major de Llagostera is the celebration in honour of the patron saint and the town’s major festivity. It is celebrated seven weeks after Easter, on Whitsun. During five days Llagostera enjoys its leisure time and shows off the town, casting an identitarian signal as well as one of tradition and modernity. The activities of the Festa Major include Sardanes (the traditional Catalan dance), balls, concerts, theatre, correfoc (a run in the streets under fireworks), tents of the village’s entities, carts race, sausage competition, and hot chocolate for children.
