Listen to an interview with Carlos Dias, majordomo of the Cofradía San Sebastian y San Fabian.

San Sebastian y San Fabian festivities are celebrated from January 19-21. Everyone in the neighborhood is expected to contribute to the cost of the festivities. Cofradía members walk the streets in costume to collect the funds, serenading the barrio with music and offering a festive atmosphere. These funds not only enable the construction of a “throne” for the patron saints’ statues, but also enable visitors to the “throne” to all be given coffee, bread and tamales. The festivities include a Mass, a procession through that section of town, time for prayer, and great celebrations into the night, including fireworks.
