Festivals in Oviedo

 

Festival of St. Matthew

The Festival of St. Matthew is one of the biggest celebrations in Oviedo.

It leaves the city packed with portable bars offering all kinds of products and gastronomic delicacies, as well as performances of highly popular musical concerts.

These festivities take place between September 14, the day of the exaltation of the Holy Cross, and September 21, the day of St. Matthew.
 
It is traditional to sell figures made with bread crumbs called paxarines during the day of St. Matthew. These figurines are used as a kind of protective amulet.

On the eve of St. Matthew, the launch of fireworks is traditional. During the days when this festival takes place, America's Day is also celebrated. That is why other events are usually held simultaneously as a tourist attraction.

On the day of St. Matthew, the High Mass is celebrated and a country meal is enjoyed in the Campo de San Francisco, mainly with “bollus preñáus” and bottles of cider.
