Food Festival
 14 to 16 January
Los Dedócratas Club has been organizing the popular Pestiñada for over 25 years.
The Pestiñada always takes place on Saturday in the Plaza de San Francisco from 2230 hours and runs through to dawn.

It is a massive event where eating pestiños is just an excuse to meet, go outside and listen the first guitars, bandurrias and cajas. There's something for everyone, and besides it's free.

The Pestiñada is the first act of the timing of Carnival, followed by Ostionada and Erizada, which will take place the following day (Sunday). It also start the Concurso Oficial de Agrupaciones del Gran Teatro Falla.

Some choirs, carnival groups with 40 or 45 members, put the music on this gastronomic festival which consume about 12,000 pestiños with anise, one drink too closely linked to Christmas.

The pestiños are Andalusian sweets, typical of Christmas, made with flour, yeast, salt, sherry, olive oil and sesame. The taste of this dish is free and accompanied by the first bars, mostly ballads recalling previous years, to build the new songs during the Carnival.

More than a greeting to Carnival, many people see in Pestiñada a farewell to recently concluded Christmas
