What Are Walking Acts?

One of the highlights of Sancha de Daidogei, walking acts are street performances full of movement that make the town their stage.
Unlike performances at fixed locations, walking acts move about freely, allowing them to excite and impress our 200,000 visitors in a direct way. They play an important role in connecting visitors with the locale and bringing the festival to life.
