Three days to pay tribute to our roots and learn about our traditions by participating in them. A weekend for fully immersing yourself in our culture

Every year, in the middle of September, Hernani celebrates its traditional Euskal Jaiak.

This is a full weekend with a programme full of cultural, gastronomic, rural, folklore and musical activities, among others, to consolidate and raise awareness about Basque traditions.

In particular, on the Saturday you will see people dressed in the baserritarra-style attire.

Saturday activities

Saturday is the day to dress up in traditional Basque attire or baserritarra. The Paseo de los Tilos hosts a livestock fair and an exhibition of farming-related trades.

The traditional games begin in the middle of the morning. This is a very lively activity involving children and groups of young people.

This is also the day when you can learn about Basque rural sports, as well as traditional music and singing.

Don’t miss the txakoli tasting and follow the giants and big-headed figures through the streets of the town centre. In the afternoon, among other activities, there will be a bertsolarismo performance.

Sunday activities

Sunday is apple and cider day and begins with the traditional reveille. The Paseo de los Tilos, meanwhile, hosts the Pablo Lasa craft fair.

The main event of the day, however, takes place in Gudarien Plaza, where you can enjoy cider tasting until lunchtime. There you will find all the cider bars of Hernani. You can buy a glass of cider and taste the bottled ciders they all produce.

At the same time, also during the morning, the trikitixa championship and the pelota and paddle matches are held.

And if you still have enough energy left, in the afternoon you can dance in the pilgrimage held in Plaza Berria.
