It's usually the Friday evening before the First Sunday in Advent - but of course that's not guaranteed!

Matts:

My guess is Nov. 30, which is a Saturday. They like to choose Saturday night for their little ceremony.

Thank you all. I would like to book flights before prices get silly but don't want to arrive too early and miss them. Came to Malaga in January this year, a bit chilly and windy but still great, some Christmas lights still on but we would like to see them around Christmas.

Apart from when there were the money problems in 2010 the ceremony is on a FRIDAY night not a Saturday, some people missed it in 2012 because of threads saying it was going to be on a Saturday:
