Every year, throughout the year, in villages and towns around Spain, Fiesta Committees – Comisiónes de Fiestas – will be working hard to collect money to pay for the Fiesta Patronale. They will organise macropremios (bingo), parties, lunches, sell lottery tickets and arrange events. The committee is unpaid and works very hard so that you can party hard!
Your participation and donations at these events help fund the party at your village or town fiesta.
Here in La Murta, Murcia, Spain our fiesta is around May 3rd. Proceeds from the new book – Spanish Village Cooking: Recetas del Campo go to the fiesta committee.
