Faldeta Day in Fraga, in Huesca (Aragon), takes place in Abril and honours the “faldeta”, the city’s typical costume.
These festivities are a tribute to the important role played by women in running the household economy. It highlights the traditional dress they wore in the past, comprising seven layered skirts, a bodice, jerkin and shawl, and normally worn with an attractive hairstyle. The festivities last several days, when the historic quarter is transformed into a setting for all kinds of cultural activities on the theme of clothing: workshops, performance, street markets, exhibitions, dances, competitions and much more. The celebration of a typical Fraga wedding is the main event in a festivity which is enjoyed by thousands of each year.
