The festivities will begin on June 5 with the traditional pilgrimage of the Patron Saint.

The daytime festivities will be held in its traditional locations; the Alameda Park and the Avenida del Mar. Meanwhile, the Night Fair will be located on a plot of almost 40,000 metres in the area of Arroyo Segundo.
