Viva Festival de San Fermin!

The 5th annual Fiesta de San Fermin en Pensacola, will take place on the 16th, 17th & 18th of July at Seville Quarter, in Downtown Pensacola.  The run is a FREE family event and is open to all ages.  The three-day event will be a blend of Ernest Hemingway, Spain, music, food & drink in a semi life-threatening experience.

The weekend will start on Thursday, July 16th with a Spanish inspired Wine Pairing Dinner prepared by Seville Quarter's Executive Chef, Brandon Melton.

  A "Chupinazo," or opening celebration, is scheduled for the evening of Friday, July 17th during Gallery Night, with live entertainment, food, beverages, & a procession honoring San Fermin, the Patron Saint of Pamplona, Spain. 

Saturday Morning the festivities will include an "Encierro" (Bull Run), honoring the Danger-Filled running of the bulls in Spain, through the streets of Pensacola.  At precisely 10:00am, the first rocket is set off to alert the runners that the corral gate is open.  A second rocket signals that all bulls have been released.  The third and fourth rockets are signals that all of the herds have entered the bullring, marking the end of the event.  Live music, food & drink will be available for participants & spectators following the "Bull Run" in Phineas Phogg's.  The organizers of this year’s event expect this to be a yearly tradition in the streets of Downtown Pensacola.
