L’Alfas del Pi, La Nucia and Altea unite for San Vicent Ferrer celebrations


THE CHAPEL of Captivador, located at the crossroads between L’Alfas del Pi, La Nucia and Altea will play host to the San Vicent Ferrer celebrations this weekend Friday April 21 – Monday April 24.

The traditional festival is celebrated at a slightly different time every year – always culminating on the second Monday of Pasqua.

The respective Departments of Culture and Fiestas of L’Alfas del Pi, Altea and La Nucia have organised the programme of events in an excellent example of twinning between the towns and in collaboration with the Associacio 2on Centenari de l’Ermita de Sant Vicent, the Parish of La Nucía and the Comision Majorals d’Agost 2017, Penya L’Afalak-Rebels.

The programme presents a huge array of events and activities for all to enjoy: dances, footraces, the 350th anniversary talk of the Sèquia Mare, children’s activities, music, Pilota Valenciana, pilgrimage and mass.

Great Babylon and rockers Motor City will keep crowds entertained into the evening on Friday before DJ Mateu closes ahead of Saturday’s celebrations. The Ballumbia group will provide the musical backdrop for Saturday and on Sunday Mr. Pink and DJ act Vicki Ramirez will take to the stage.

Always one step ahead of the game, the organisers have created the hashtag #SantVicentLaNucia2017 for attendees to use when sharing photos and videos across social media platforms.

The full programme of events can be found on the L’Alfas del Pi, La Nucia and Altea town hall websites.
