Iruña-Pamplona. There are only a few days until San Fermin begins in Pamplona, but the phenomenon exceeds the geographical limits of the Navarrese capital, since there are many Basques and Navarrese communities around the world that also celebrate every year. In Iruña, thousands of people will gather on Saturday, June 6th at noon for the 2019 Txupinazo. In the Diaspora, Friday will also be the start of many celebrations, some of which have been extended until July 14th.
We do not pretend to provide an exhaustive list, and it isn’t easy with the most celebrated feast whose events multiply along with the places where it is celebrated in the Diaspora from Patagonia to Shanghai. Here there is a first list of some of the festivities in Argentina, Australia, England and Mexico that we have been made aware of.
