It’s a two-week period during which children and young people get on the traditional fairground rides and several cultural activities are organised. One of most traditional and expected ones is Yecla Jazz Festival, which gathers soloists and bands of very different music styles such as country, rock, folk or flamenco and receives media coverage of Radio 3 from RNE.
Festivals in Summer
In Yecla we always spend summer calmly. Here we look forward to the arrival of the second week of September to celebrate our fair: two weeks full of cultural activities, concerts, music and plenty of revelries. It is tradition that parents let their children go on a ride. At the same time, a lot of people go dancing to the fair tents (“casetas”) to drink something and listen to good music.
