Artzai Eguna
Festival of Regional Tourist Interest, on the last Sunday in August, in Uharte-Arakil, just a few minutes from Altsasu/Alsasua, the Day of the Shepherd is held - the Artzai Eguna. This is a colourful festival that pays homage to the traditional shepherds' way of life.

Numerous activities take place during the day and attract throngs of visitors. Some of the most popular events are the sheepdog trials, the mutton stew contest and the sheep-shearing competition. You can also see how sheep's cheese is traditionally made, listen to the performances of different folk groups and enjoy a traditional craft fair, not forgetting the aizkolaris (wood cutters), harrijasotzailes (stone-lifters) and the bare-handed pelota games which demonstrate to visitors the essence of our traditions that are still evident in rural sports.
