Saint Agatha’s Day (February 4th/5th)

Even if the festivity of Saint Agatha is the 5th of February, celebrations take place the evening before that day. Traditional choirs walk around Bilbao singing and praising the Saint.

Choir singers wear traditional clothes and carry wooden sticks, which they knock on the ground, as a basic rhythmical pattern. Many people take part in these choirs, no matter the age, and choirs can be found all around Bilbao the 4th of February.
