Do you like mushrooms? Come and enjoy the Perretxiko Eguna in Donostia

setas 0After saying farewell to September, the month of transition that some worship and other detest, it is time for the autumn again. Even though it seems that summer is far behind, there is no reason to be sad. Autumn is bringing a season full of activities for all tastes and ages in our beloved San Sebastian that are worth looking forward to. For us these days, where the leafs start to fall from the trees, are synonymous with mycological and Gastronomic days. For the 19th consecutive year these days are organized in San Sebastian. If you are planning to stay in our hotel in Donostia and your mouth starts watering when thinking about mushrooms, this is the event you cannot miss!


From the 18th of September till the 1st of October San Sebastian will be transformed into the autumn atmospheres. The Mycological and gastronomic Conference is a must visit event, consisting of workshops, conferences, courses and many tastings. A real treat for your taste buds! One of the highlights of this event will take place on Sunday October 1st, with the celebration of Perretxiko Eguna. A day fully dedicated to mycology.

The 1ste of October: A day for the whole family!

For the well-known mycology fanatics or just people who are interested in mushrooms, during the day there will be exhibitions of collected species properly classified. Moreover, there will be a display of drawings made by the children of the local neighborhood. At 11 am you can join the popular tasting of pintxos with mushrooms. And to top it off, the bars in the neighborhood will be offering delicious mushroom pintxos for only 1 euro. A real steal!

But that is not all. There will be several walking tours and various children’s workshops where the little ones can let their creativity flow and have a great time. Adults, on the other hand, will enjoy wandering around through the fair of mycological- and traditional products.

If this isn’t enough for you yet, there are other activities planned. After 1 pm the Ibaierz choir will sing on the special occasion of its 10th anniversary. As a novelty in this edition, the giants will wear traditional clothing named ‘loiolatarras’ and will be responsible for brightening the evening.

Where to go?

El Perretxiko Eguna will take place at la Plaza de las Lavanderas de Donostia. In case of rain, it would move to the arcades of Atari-Eder 3-4.

Welcome the autumn as it should be welcomed! If you are in San Sebastian next Sunday the 1st, make sure to visit this interesting event. Enjoy a day feeling one with Mother Nature’s beauties from 10:30 till 14:30. There’s no better way to spend a Sunday!
