San Isidro Festival 2018

May 11 - May 15

San Isidro Festival

As every year, around the 15th of May, Madrid celebrates the Festival of San Isidro, its patron saint. This is a very old tradition in honor of this saint, who lived in Madrid in the eleventh century. Some of the current celebrations are held since the sixteenth century, as the habit of snacking on the prairie of San Isidro.

During the festival there are many events throughout the city, typical foods like the San Isidro biscuits, “cocido madrileño”, traditional costumes like the “chulapo”, carousels, and the “chotis”, a typical dance of the region.

In 2018 the San Isidro Festival will be held from 11 to 15 May, with more than 200 concerts, religious events and street activities. We’re summarizing here the main activities of this year’s festival, but we recommend you to read the full program on the the event’s official site.
