The peña Alegría club was founded in 1952 in the Moto Club bar where two emerging groups were merged. Their first Sanfermin fiestas were in 1953, where they already appeared with a banner. Their origins came from earlier where a group of young men founded the Peña Imoztarra, named after the city bus that served the old part of town. They had a premises in Nueva Street. They used to meet to play football and to go out together as a group on the town. Meanwhile there was another football team called Alegría which used to meet in the Arrizabalaga bar in Agustín Street. These two clubs eventually merged in to the present Alegría de Peña club.
Their earliest initiatives were connected with sports. They founded a basketball club and also went on mountaineering excursions. The club also created a gastronomic area from the earliest days. In 1969 they took up their present name. They dress in a green smock which has the neck, cuffs and pocket in red. They have a red necktie, with their badge sown on and the edges are in a green color.
Up to the 1960's their premises were located at the Or Kopon Bar and then they moved to Calderería Street where they re-named their premises as Bar Alegría. In 1973 they moved to no.8 Jarauta Street. On the 19th of July, 1978, after the violent events of that year during Sanfermin, their premises was destroyed by a bomb without suffering any human injuries. They then moved to their present location at no. 61 of the same street. In 2002 they celebrated the 50th anniversary of their foundation with various events.
Another aspect of this Peña is their charity work, which has been working since 1960. They have a "Potato Operation" in function which consists of collecting potatoes and donating them to a nun's congregation - "Las Hermanitas de Los Pobres" - which helps the poor. The club like to say that their full title is "A sporting, cultural and leisure club." Apart from their Sanfermin activities, they also hold cookery courses and also Basque dancing classes. They also celebrate the "day of the beer" and a Mexican fiesta as well as a mus card-playing championship. This year makes the fifteenth consecutive one that the brass band - "La Charanga Incansables" accompany the Peña club in Sanfermin.
