"Fiestas patronales in Puerto Rico are yearly celebrations held in each municipality of the island. Like in other countries, "fiestas patronales" are heavily influenced by Spanish culture and religion, and are dedicated to a saint or virgin. The festivities usually include religious processions honoring its Catholic heritage. However, elements of African and local culture have been incorporated as well. They also feature parades, games, artisans, amusement rides, regional food, and live entertainment"

 

The official location of  Rincón' Festival de Patronales is Plaza Amastad which is located on the right side of the 115 (as this map shows) from your Rincon Beachfront Vacation Villa Rental, just before you get to Downtown.   You won't miss it while the Festival is going on as there are vendors, live music, carnival rides and people .... lots of friendly happy people.
