A lively town with many events of all kinds all year round and for all types of audiences.
Colmenar on stage
From organ concerts at the Church of Santa María la Mayor in the spring and autumn to plays at the Diéguez Theatre or the many temporary and permanent exhibits at Colmenarte (an art and cultural centre).
There are also gastronomy events like the Colmenar de Oreja Wine Fair one of the most important in the region. In addition to wine and winery tasting sessions and samples in the Plaza Mayor.
Colmenar de Oreja is also about having fun! For example, during the Cristo del Humilladero Festival featuring very rare running of... oxen! as well as bullfights.
And don't forget the many concerts that take place throughout the year, tasting sessions, processions, popular festivals in the countryside, pilgrimages... and the popular festival of San Roque, which is especially enjoyable for children who become the stars of it all.
