The Chaián Chub Festival reaches its 40th year in 2014 and includes the now-traditional cyprinid fishing competition, as well as a popular gastronomy festival and subsequent dance.

NOTE: the information provided, including dates, is approximate for 2014. If you would like exact information, write to info@areasantiago.es

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.

The finery, of both the “Xenerais” and their horses, stand out due to their tradition, originality, colours and degree of elaboration, making them highly valuable.

The “Entroido da Ulla” (Carnival) originated in the first half of the 19th century and is based on the combats that took place in the region during that century: the invasion of Napoleon’s army, the 1846 revolution and the Carlist wars.
