What should I wear?

Any time you see photos from this event you will notice everyone is wearing white – its part of the tradition.  So as an Insider, and to get into the spirit of the fiesta it’s easy - wear white!  It doesn’t really matter what you wear trousers or shorts, tee or singlet whatever – just make it in white.

The most important part of the San Fermin uniform is the distinctive red scarf (Panuelos).  They must be put at noon on July 6th and worn for the duration of your stay at the festival.   Another essential to your Fiesta wardrobe is the red waist band.  For both of these we have got you covered, they are included as part of our all inclusive packages.

Foot wear – make sure you are comfortable; you will be on your feet most of the day.  Flip-flops and sandals are not really suitable – unfortunately there will be broken glass and someone may inadvertently step on your toes.  So its best if your wear enclosed shoes.

We suggest that our Insiders bring their whites from home and we will take care of the red.  Always keep in mind it is important to be comfortable and not to worry about your clothes getting dirty.
