The town council and residents of Tahal are in full preparation to celebrate their traditional patron saint fiestas in honour of the Santo Cristo del Consuelo. This year, the programme of activities promises something for everyone, from live music to sporting events, not forgetting the worship of the patron saint. The festivities will take place on 14 and 15 September, turning the heart of the Sierra de Los Filabres into a hive of activity and culture.
The celebrations will begin on the 14th of September at 11:00 am, with a reveille enlivened by the charanga Fusión Fiestera. This event will be the first opportunity for locals and visitors alike to feel the festive atmosphere that characterises Tahal’s patron saint fiestas.
At 13:00 hours, the faithful will congregate for the Mass and procession in honour of the Santo Cristo del Consuelo, which will be enlivened by the Tahal Choir. A balloon display will mark the end of the procession, and from there to the opening of the Midday Fair, which will offer locals and visitors a considerable variety of gastronomic and entertainment options.
Sporting events will also have their place on the agenda. At 20:00 hours, an exciting football match between Solteras Vs Casadas will take place at the Tahal Sports Centre.
The first night of the festivities will be crowned with a special performance by Carmen Mari Show, starting at 23:30.
The second day of festivities will also begin with the energising reveille at 11:00 hours, followed by another mass and procession at 13:00 hours.
A special event to look out for is the Mayordomos’ Lunch, – the brotherhood was founded in 1870 – which will take place at 15:00 in the Tahal Scenic Space.
To conclude, the Noche de Fiesta will feature the presence of the Orquesta Omega, who will entertain the evening from 23:30 hours.
Tahal’s patron saint fiestas are a mixture of tradition and fun, guaranteeing an unforgettable atmosphere. With events for all ages and tastes, these fiestas offer a unique opportunity to enjoy the heart of the Sierra de Los Filabres and the rich culture of the village.
