In honour of the Virgen de la Asunción and of San Roque (patron saint of the village). A foot race is held in the Circuit of the Provincial Council, and there is also street dancing, concerts, exhibitions and a variety of different performances.
The most relevant festival of Villar is the Carnival. This takes place during the weekend before Lent.
On the night of the Friday there is a street musicians competition (Murgas), satirical and amusing criticism of things that happened during the year. Saturday is the most important day, when a colourful costume parade is held in the afternoon, the burning of the „Chinchoso„. The Chinchosa (the doll) burned at the Carnival represents the most HATED person of the last year (Franco, George W. Bush & Lewis Hamilton are examples).
The same night there is the funeral of the „Morca” preceded by a procession of torches. Bands play all weekend long. Official web: www.carnavalesdevillar.com
