The best way to get to know an area is to participate in its festivals and traditions. The festivities in Cabanes are a memory bridge through which you can share the identity and connect with the heart of a town: the people.
Festivities of Sant Antoni Abad
Dates: Friday closest to January 17.
Don’t miss the tasty tradition of the traditional “prims” and “coquetes” and the magical lighting of the monumental bonfire, which is celebrated on the eve of the festivities with the blessing of the animals.

Dates: First week of May.
The festivities in honour of the patron saint, Nostra Senyora del Bon Succés, begin on the first Sunday in May with the pilgrimage to Les Santes and the “Entrà de Maig” (Welcoming May).
