The end of the summer in Trujillo is celebrated with one of its most popular parties: the San Jose de las Delicias Festival, better known for the Toromatch, one of its main shows. And in Tierra Viva Trujillo we celebrate it with a special offer in our rooms!
Since 1993, Las Delicias beach, located in the Moche district of Trujillo and 20 minutes by car from downtown, celebrates the San Jose Festival, an event dedicated to its patron San Jose de las Delicias, which has as inspiration some of the old and modern Spanish customs.
Every year and for four days, hundreds of citizens of Las Delicias and its surroundings come together to organize and be part of this entertaining event with many activities that will transport you to the Iberian Peninsula.
Walking through the streets of this little village you will find men and women dressed in elegant typical Spanish costumes. These are the hosts of the party: Mrs. Abanico, who is considered the Mother of the Festival, Mr. Jose and Mrs. Josefa, who are always accompanied by their four majas of different ages and the Mayor of the Festival (you will recognize him because he carries in his hands the “key of the city” and a baton).
One of the main shows during these days is the Toromatch, a kind of bullfighting made by young people in the area in which the animal is not injured. He is joined by the “pamplonada”, a race of people with heifers in the purest San Fermin style.
Also, what would a Spanish party be without music? To complete the atmosphere of fun and joy that lives in the San Jose Festival are the tunas and tablaos, where you can enjoy the beautiful art of flamenco dancing.
And, of course, this event can not miss the most delicious dishes of Mediterranean cuisine. The residents of the area open the doors of their house to turn them into traditional tascas (taverns where food and drinks are sold) where you can taste familiar dishes and drinks such as paella, tripes, potato omelet, Serrano ham or sangria.
During 2019, the San José de las Delicias Festival will take place from March 14 to March 17, so you are on time to be part of this fun event and get a little closer to the traditional Spanish parties. Do not miss it!
