Los Mayos festival

A warm welcome to spring!

An age-old tradition, whose exact origins remain a mystery, the Los Mayos festival takes place each year in the centre of Vigo to bid farewell to the winter and to welcome in the spring, in clear homage to Mother Nature. The streets are lined with multi-coloured flowers and filled with tradition Galician music, which keeps the party going all through the night, showcasing all the most characteristics elements of Vigo culture. The locals usually dress in white and sing songs celebrating the arrival of the new season while processions of floral monuments or people on shoulder-borne platforms file pass. The festival takes place in the second week of May.
