The sprout lunch
It is a popular meal in a cottage outside of Sant Sadurní, at Mas La Riera. The Association brings the drinks and cava and the "garlanda" (soft cake in a circle shape), apart of the tables and chairs. All assistants need to bring their own food, as it was a picnic. It is held in early May, when the grapevine are sprouting and also it is important to start preparing all the things for the next edition of the phylloxera party, on September.
It's a dinner that is after the "Fires i Festes"at the Church Square. That is the annual closing cycle of the phylloxera celebration. In this case, the dinner is organized by the Association, who gives the profits to charity. The name comes because, in the early years, these benefits have contributed to the campaign for the bell church restoration. The promoters of this campaign were making a thank you gesture and gave the a phylloxera shape to one of the gargoyles from the bell tower, and since then this name was adopted.
Phylloxera of the Ancients
It is a smaller version of the party that is celebrated at the "House of Ancients" and at the day residence of the old Hospital, in order to make the old people of the village enjoy the party. Apart of some elements that participate with the phylloxera (grapevines, small phylloxeras and drummers), also participates in the local gang of devils "Se m'n Refum".
They are workshops and activities for children organized by the Association during the day before the festival, which also coincide with the days before the beginning of the school year. Among the activities planned, there are always some of them oriented to participate in the festival. For example, in the first years, they made costumes to participate in the Festival of Children’s phylloxera, and in these workshops they built the truck that is used to carry the fireworks during the parades of the children’s phylloxera.
