San Miguel Arcángel / St. Michael, the Archangel is the patron saint of the Dominican armed forces. He is the Captain of the Celestial Legions. Combating the devil he leads the forces of heaven in their triumph over the powers of hell. Celebrated in the Santo Domingo town of San Miguel each year on the 29th of September.
There is all sorts of fun but please be careful. People party a little too much for this festival and it can get a little crazy.
The park where most of the activities happen is on Juan Isidro Perez and Jose Reyes in the San Miguel Sector of Ciudad Colonial. See the map of the Colonial Zone for exact location (#11 on the map). For a listing of all the Patron Saint Celebrations.
