The creators of the Tamborrada Zonbi, Behobia Z and the Hilerri Kirolak bring a very special Fair to the Boulevard music stand and its surroundings. Because while it may indeed be based on Saint Thomas’s Day, it will feature pieces of human flesh rather than pork. And instead of wood crafts, it will offer decorations à la Ed Gein.
Our Cannibal Fair is also hugely pagan and worships all gods. All of a celebration in honour of the Goddess Mari and her other mythological Basque cronies. That’s why, when the fair is over and night falls, they will also perform a ritual in the purest The Wicker Man style.
So yes, come along decked out in your traditional farmers’ clobber… Just don’t forget the blood!
