San Sebastian Festival, Puerto Rico Overview

Everybody loves a long holiday, and Puerto Rico has the longest holiday season in the world. The San Sebastian Festival (known as Fiesta de la Calle San Sebastián), marks the end of the winter festivities on the islands. Taking place during the third week of January across multiple days, the festival honors Saint Sebastian, a Roman Catholic saint popular throughout the region. The most famous celebrations of this festival take place in the Old San Juan area.

During this festival, local arts and handicraft stalls attract tourists to the streets of the old town, offering them great souvenirs to remember their stay in Puerto Rico. Another famous aspect of the celebration is the Cabezudos display, where giant puppet heads parade through the streets commemorating various stories of local folklore. As the night sets in, the streets become the mainstage for numerous parties and concerts, where local musicians and tourists gather to dance and enjoy the night away!
