Bullfighting in Spain

Bullfighting Festivals in Spain: Calendar and Locations
Thousands protest bullfighting in Spain as calls for ban

For the most part, the bullfighting season in Spain runs from April until September, with most major cities having one event a week (usually on a Sunday). However, there are also a number of bullfighting festivals throughout the season. These bullfighting festivals usually run for one or two weeks and have bullfights almost every day during the festival.

The most famous bullfighting festival in Spain is, of course, the Pamplona Running of the Bulls at the San Fermin festival in July (which features actual bullfights as well as the famous bull runs) but there are plenty of other bullfighting festivals all over Spain that garner less attention.
