The Fiesta in Tafalla, located 30 km south of Pamplona, runs from August 14-20 each year in honor of Our Lady of the Assumption (15th) and San Sebastián (16th ), Tafalla’s patron saints, with religious ceremonies, accompanied by dancers, pipers, txistularis, the giants and kilikis parading through the streets.

The next fiesta, with it’s own running of the bulls, will be in the medieval village of Sangüesa, to the east of Pamplona.  The Fiestas de Sangüesa is celebrated each year from September 11-17, and is in honor their patron saint, San Sebastián.

Sangüesa, Tudela, Tafalla and Pamplona are the four Navarran towns where you can run with the bulls.
