This year, Teatro Kamikaze and Café Pavón will be organizing the stage and performance schedule. Usually, the balconies of the street are decorated with mantles and lanterns to draw color to the area. La Iglesia de San Millán y San Cayetano will also be holding ceremonies. There will be swing classes, performances, races, kids activities, art displays, and food vendors. 

There will be a city mural erected and spectators are allowed to decorate it during the week.

On the 9th of August the San Lorenzo activities begin which include a gastro route along Calle de Argumosa. Tradicional café de puchero is served during this time, which is a type of sweetened coffee made boiled in on the stovetop.

The Virgen de la Paloma Festivities are the final activities for the festival and they commence immediately after, on the 10th until the 15th. There will be a Ruta de la tapa “Slowfood” which consists of many local restaurants participating as food vendors during the festival.

On the final day, the 15th, a mural of the Virgin is brought down and it is customary to adorn her portrait with flower arrangements.
