Really experience Spanish culture and be right in the middle of all the madness at Running of the Bulls. This legendary multi-day festival in Pamplona is not just about running with the bulls, it’s one of the biggest street parties in the world where you can drink and dance with locals and travellers alike. From the 8 - 9 July we will be hosting our own festival, Stoked in the Park. It is focused on the fun of the fiesta, the culture, the nine days of sangria soaked hedonism. It is about live music, dancing in the streets, meeting people from around the world and partying with them!
Are you ready to have an exhilarating and crazy time at The Running of the Bulls? The Running of the Bulls festival officially starts on the 6th July and runs through until the 14th July with daily Bull runs and nightly street parties. San Fermin is so much more than just the wonderful terror that is the Pamplona bull run… it is one of the world’s biggest street parties – day and night you can drink and dance and smooch in the streets. And there are cultural events every day, so you can do something nice and really justify going on a massive rampage during the night.
4th – 5th July
Stoke campsite opens for business! The rest of the day you have free time for optional activities. Stoke Suggestion: Chill by the pool, enjoy a cold beer or ten or check out central Pamplona. Dinner is served nightly and there will be a massive campsite party as always.
From 9am, there will be guides to take to you to Pamplona for the opening ceremony.
At 12pm, the opening ceremony, or ‘El Chupinazo’, takes place in the main square. A rocket is fired to signal the start of the festival. Return that evening for included dinner or enjoy the festivities in town. There’ll be a huge fireworks display tonight and every other night of San Fermines.
7th – 9th July
5am – An early morning for all the bull runners, who head into town to take part in the first run, or ‘encierro’. You must be in the run by 7am to secure a spot in the madness. This is always the biggest (and most dangerous) run.
8am – 4pm – Hot breakfast at camp
9am – 10pm – Free time to check out Pamplona jump on our our walking tours or hang out in our town bar downing unlimited beer and sangria, making new friends, playing the best drinking games and dancing your socks off.
8pm – 10pm Dinner at campsite
11pm – See more fireworks or head into town for endless fiestas
10th – 14th July
8am – 4pm Hot breakfast
9am – 10pm – Join the locals celebrating in town, try some Spanish food and catch some brass bands parading around town. Have a siesta in the shade somewhere because you will probably be dancing and drinking all night later on.
8 – 10pm Dinner at campsite
At 00:00 on 14th July the festival ends. The closing ceremony is called Pobre de Mí and is signalled by a rocket being fired at the strike of midnight; this is when your pañuelo is removed and San Fermines winds down for another year. And when we say winds down, we mean goes out with a bang as the whole city parties for one more night.
