The festivities are an excellent opportunity to learn about Basque culture and traditions. No doubt you will find out what a ‘Gau Pasa’ is. And then, why not learn to dance a Jota?

The entire town goes into the street to enjoy the different Basque dances, danced to the music of traditional instruments like the ‘txistu’ and ‘tamboril’ in a display of dances and music parades with a festive atmosphere always finished off with a good ‘pintxo’ and wine
One of the most lively moments of summer. There is a very popular open air cooking competition. Participants cook cod carefully in the streets of Gorliz to win the prize for the best cod. There are rural and artisanal fairs as well, which are also very popular.
Like every big festival, it starts with the txupinazo, a rocket that announces the beginning of a festival three or four days long. You will see traditional Basque dances and traditional sport exhibitions such as stone lifting or trunk cutting. There is also a very popular paella competition which has become a must of the festival. In the evening local and regional bands play live music to end the day in the best way possible.
The third weekend of August. children and adults have fun together taking part in games and gastronomic competitions. There are two of these, an omelette competition and the traditional “Sukalki” competition, a typical Basque beef stew very loved by the locals.
