The Chaián Chub Festival reaches its 42th year in 2016 and includes the now-traditional cyprinid fishing competition, as well as a popular gastronomy festival and subsequent dance.

(2015 Program)

The festival features a competition of cyprinids, the family to which the chub belongs. Competitors are divided into different categories: children, youth, women, senior citizens or teams. Anglers gather at 8 am in Bar Nieto to start finishing at 9 am until 1.30 pm. After the catches are weighed, the awards ceremony is held around 2.45 pm.

The competition is followed by the traditional festival, accompanied by the music of Trazo’s Os Xeitosos bagpipe group followed by an orchestra. After lunch, the open-air dance continues from 6 to 10 pm, once again with an orchestra. There is also octopus on offer and inflatables for children.
