Havaneres

 

Since the first meeting of singers in 1966 when three friends (Francesc Alsius, Frederic Martí, and Joan Pericot) ran into each other at a tavern in Calella until today’s festival, several years have passed and the festival is fully rejuvenated.

The Cantada d’Havaneres, or the Havaneres Sing Along Festival, in Calella de Palafrugell has become the HAVANERES FESTIVAL par excellence, establishing itself as an international tourist phenomenon, kicking off summer with the festival held on the first Saturday in July.
