Assumption of the Virgin
Celebrated every year is the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary which commemorates the death of Mary and her bodily assumption into Heaven. This is really a Catholic Church Holy Day rather than a party for all.
There are no fiestas to be noted in August. Benidorm and other town Councils however, each year arrange a host of cultural and artistic events. Live music concerts can be found on most nights around towns and particularly to be found in the Aiguera Park auditoriums in Benidorm.
August is just a great month with long hot days and short hot nights therefore treat yourself to a break in this month and just plan to laze and swim, laze and swim!
