|Onil Fair In honour of Nostre Senyor Robat (Our Stolen Lord)|
In honour of Nostre Senyor Robat (Our Stolen Lord) 25-28 NovemberValencia
Onil celebrates the festivities in honor of Nostre Senyor Robat (Our Stolen Lord) since 1924. An ecclesiastic celebration with solemn religious acts, the festivities also include interesting cultural events and activities.
The celebration commemorates the stealing and recovery of the Holy Wafer in 1824. For 20 days, Onil's neighbors participated in search parties throughout the region until the wafer was finally located in La Pedrera and returned to Onil, where a big celebration followed.
The bells will toll on November 27th to mark the beginnings of the festivities. Wednesday 28th is an emotional and very important date. Mass is celebrated with music by the Coral Polifónica. Next, the Solemn Procession will fill the exquisitely decorated streets of Onil. After the Procession, the Exhibit of Nostre Senyor Robat takes place.
Amongst the activities included in this year's program are theatre plays by the Albena Teatre troupe with its play Gosses. Trasgo Producciones presents Gorda, starring Teté Delgado, Luis Merlo, Iñaki Miramón y Alicia Martínez. Visitors will also enjoy good music at the Chamber Music Concert, the Medieval Music Concert, or the St. Cecil concert at the Auditorio Centro Cultural.
The festivities end with a pilgrimage to Tibi-Castalla-Onil on Sunday 25th.
