Álava is already preparing for the events in honor of San Prudencio and Estibaliz. They will be strange parties, which will have to be experienced from a distance. In fact, they will not be parties, but «commemorative events», as the Diputación has remarked. Gasteiz Hoy will cover the main events, to bring the spirit of San Prudencio and Estibaliz to all of Álava. The retreta will sound again through Gasteiz Hoy in all homes, and the spirit of celebration will be present.
Diputación has organized several events, which can be followed remotely. The most important will be the one held from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Iradier Arena. It will be a show without an audience that Gasteiz Hoy will broadcast live. A show that will include five touches of retreat from different parts of Álava. The same touches that are usually celebrated in the Palace of the Province.
In addition, at 10:15 p.m. the Tamborrada will be held on the balconies. An initiative similar to that of 2020, with music playing in Gasteiz today and through the church towers. In this case, the tambourine will sound simultaneously from several churches in Vitoria-Gasteiz and Álava.
