From August 16th to 28th, 2022 the annual Fiesta Virgen del Buen Viaje will take place in the north of Fuerteventura in the fishing village of El Cotillo. The fiesta has cult status, especially among young people from the Canaries: celebrating for a week in hot August. At the time of the fiesta, the small town is bursting at the seams.
For the youth of the archipelago, it is often the first trip they undertake alone. Uninhibited celebrations are the order of the day. For the town’s older population, the fiesta is the religious highlight of the year. Procession, night procession, the big fish dinner at the Muellito de los Pescadores and the cultural program on the festival stage at the old fishing pier is still the core of the celebrations. As usual in Spain, the Fiesta Virgen del Buen Viaje is surrounded by a broad, worldly programme: singing, dancing, eating and drinking a lot, enjoying life, no matter how easy or difficult it is.
Anyone who is on the sunny island during the fiesta should not miss it. All details about the background of the Fiesta, the program and impressions in the picture under the following link.
