The Festes del solstici d'estiu (Summer Solstice Festivals) in Andorra are vibrant celebrations that take place during the summer solstice, usually around June 21st. These festivities are deeply rooted in Andorran traditions and culture, offering locals and visitors a unique and joyful experience.

During the Festes del solstici d'estiu, the streets and squares of Andorra come alive with music, dance, and various performances. Traditional folk music fills the air as local musicians showcase their talents, creating a lively and festive atmosphere.

One of the highlights of the celebrations is the Correfoc, a thrilling event where participants dressed as demons dance through the streets, waving fireworks and setting off firecrackers, symbolizing the triumph of light over darkness. It is a mesmerizing spectacle that captivates spectators of all ages.

Food plays a significant role in these festivities as well. Local gastronomy takes center stage with stalls and food fairs offering delicious Andorran specialties and traditional dishes for everyone to enjoy.
