Party, festivals and culture


Pontevedra is always buzzing with nightlife, parties and festivals.  Throughout the year – especially in spring and summer – there is a regular program of events organised by both official and private entities, like large exhibitions and small (or huge!) concerts.

The plentiful public spaces are invaded at any time with music and culture; the International Jazz and Blues Festival, la Feira Franca (a Medieval Festival which takes over the whole town) the Itineranta (street theatre) the Peregrina Festival, Surfing de Lérez (a rock music festival by the river) and the best street carnival in Galicia are among many others.  Arts, theatre, music, contemporary expressionism, fashion, competitions and conferences, fill this city with life.
