Tarragona International Fireworks Competition 2017

If you are looking for somewhere exciting to go on a holiday this summer, you might want to consider the Spanish east coast. The city of Tarragona will be hosting a beautiful fireworks competition starting at the end of June. Fireworks competitions are always a treat but especially so when you can stand on a beach enjoying the view. So, what is happening in Tarragona and what can you expect from this extravaganza?

What is Tarragona International Fireworks Competition 2017?

Tarragona International Fireworks Competition is taking place from June 28 to July 1 in 2017. The competition will be the 27th year, as it all started back in 1990. Indeed, the long history of the competition has helped turned this event into one of the most important on the Mediterranean.
The daily event is perfect for the night owls. You will need to head down to the Playa del miracle beachfront every night at 10.30 pm in order to enjoy the fireworks. Just don’t wait until too long to get your spot – it’s estimated that the city will attract over 60,000 visitors throughout the festivities.

Who is taking part in the competition this year?

The participants change each year and the competition to get involved in the main festival is fierce. It is up to a committee to pick the four pyrotechnic teams that get to compete for the main prize: the right to host the main fireworks display at the Santa Tecla Festival. The festival is held in Tarragona on September 23.
The teams for 2017 are:

  • Turís de Turís from Valencia, Spain. You can watch their performance on the opening day on June 28.
  • Hermonas Ferrández de Beniel from Murcia, Spain. The team has been operating since 1892 and they will get to perform on June 29.
  • Martarello S.R.L. D’Arquá Polisine from Italy. The Italian team is hosting the fireworks extravaganza on June 30.
  • Accitana Maria Angustias S.L. de Guadix from Granada, Spain. The responsibility and honour of hosting the last show in the competition go to the Spanish team, which will perform on July 1.

To get a taste of what’s to come, here’s a video from one of the participants in the 2015 competition:

Where to find more information?

If you are a big fan of fireworks, then you should definitely consider visiting the city on one of the days. The city is located close to Barcelona as well so it can be a great combination holiday in Spain!
You can find more information about the Tarragona International Fireworks Competition on the Spanish Tourist website and the official tourism site for Tarragona.

Can’t make it to Tarragona International Fireworks Competition in 2017?

You don’t need to travel to Spain in order to enjoy a good fireworks show. If you won’t be able to visit the Tarragona International Fireworks Competition in 2017, you can still get plenty of great fireworks from the Firework Crazy website. You can organise your own shown, complimented with a few tapas and a bottle of good Spanish wine and you’ll almost feel like you are standing on the beach in eastern Spain.
