What is a cookie?

A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your device when accessing certain websites.

Types of cookies

  • Technical cookies: These cookies allow the user to browse a website, platform or application and use the different web options and services, such as controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the sessions, accessing parts with restricted access, recalling aspects of an order, performing the process to purchase an order, processing the application to register or take part in an event, using security features while browsing, storing content for the purpose of broadcasting videos or sound, or sharing content via social networks.
  • Analysis cookies: these cookies allow the number of users to be quantified and are used to measure and analyse the browsing in order to improve the services made available. They can be own or third-party cookies.

Calendar of events

You can come whenever you want: you will always find an event you cannot miss


We want you to take part in each and every one of the events that are coming to the town and the rest of Bizkaia.

Enjoy our music festivals, whether they take place in summer like the BBK Legends, the Bilbao BBK Live and the Bay of Biscay Festival or the BIME in autumn. Make a note in your diary of all the sporting events we will be hosting this year: the Bilbao-Bilbao Classic, the WOP Challenge, the Bilbao Night Marathon and many more events to come. If you are more into cinema, don't miss the Santurzine, ZINEBI or FANT film festivals.

Let yourself be seduced by our culture and all the festivities in which we celebrate it: the Basque FEST at Easter, the Last Monday of Gernika in October or the Durangoko Azoka in December. Oh, and if you want to soak up the best festive atmosphere, don't miss the Aste Nagusia in August. We are waiting for you, like Marijaia, with open arms.
