What happened during the Pamplona bullfight 2023 festival

Every year, Pamplona’s annual 9-day Fiesta de San Fermín draws thousands of visitors for its famous events, including the iconic running of the bulls.

The festival begins with massive crowds gathering in Pamplona’s town square for the chupinazo, a rocket launch that marks the start of the celebrations. Throughout the festival, attendees enjoy a variety of events such as a carnival, fireworks, the running of the bulls, and numerous bullfights.

This year, approximately a million spectators have flocked to Pamplona for the running of the bulls, a tradition dating back to the early 14th century. Participants run in front of a small group of bulls through the city streets, culminating in bullfights where the bulls face matadors in a fight to the death.

Tickets for the Pamplona bullfights are highly sought after. Season tickets are sold almost exclusively to city residents and sell out well in advance. Only 1,000 tickets per day are available to the general public, leading to a thriving secondary market where these tickets are resold at much higher prices.

Get your Pamplona bullfight tickets

Getting Pamplona bullfight tickets can be a challenging task because season tickets are sold out well in advance and only available to local Pamplona residents.

Since Pamplona bullfight tickets are scarce, I recommended you to purchase them well in advance and always do it online.

If you don’t buy them online, you risk

  • Not having tickets at all, since the offer is extremely scarce.
  • Facing long lines and high demand for tickets.
  • Paying a (high) premium for either the Sol (sun) side or Sombra (shade) area of the stadium.
  • Ending up with counterfeit bullfighting tickets, so be cautious when purchasing from third-party sources around the bullring.
