Event details

Feria de San Isidro
15 May  -15 May  

The whole of the Comunidad de Madrid goes into party mode during this holiday, named after the patron saint of the city, San Isidro. “May is the month of the bulls in Madrid” says the festival’s publicity, listing many different matadors, plus bullfights that take place primarily in Madrid’s Plaza de Toros de las Ventas. If that’s not your thing, there’s the big festivity in the Parque de San Isidro in the Carabanchel district, with music, open-air dances and traditional rosquillas (pastries) sold especially for the celebrations. In addition, the famous parade of the cabezudos (a procession of individuals wearing giant heads) takes place in the centre of the city, forming part of the light-hearted and unique entertainment during this spring festival.

San Isidro Festival 2013, various locations, on and around 15 May. Programme to be confirmed.
