About La Noche de San Juan

Galician symbology reaches its maximum expression in Austin during this celebration. We gather around the bonfire: songs are sung, we dance and enjoy good food and beverages. Rites and traditions, beliefs and superstitions come together on this magical night in which fire, the symbol of purification and protection, becomes the protagonist.

We jump over the fire, calling out “meigas fora!” to cast out evil spirits and enjoy the festivity through gastronomy, thus sardines, chorizo and wine take center stage. The night reaches it’s climax with the typical queimada and its “spell” to ward off evil and scare off bad spirits
