December 21: Santo Tomas
Another great event is the market of Santo Tomas. This festival is popular with locals as well as people from the surrounding areas, with an average of 300,000 visitors each year.
The best turkeys, capons, fruit and vegetables from the "baserris" (farmhouses) of Vizcaya are also displayed on more than 300 stalls set up between El Arenal and Plaza Nueva. If it is your first visit to this fair, don't leave without first having tried a thallus with savoury sausage accompanied by a good glass of txakoli.
The event also features dances, parades and plays.
