Who loves good food? Yes, you do! Every year Almuñécar holds a foodie event called the Feria Gastronomica in Majuelo Park. Be prepared to sample the delicious food from each of the stalls and also partake in a few beverages as well. It isn’t just about food and drinks though. No, you will also be very entertained and this is just one of the annual events which are the sign that summer is on the way.
What is a Feria Gastronomica?
It’s a food festival! Time for you to sample many gastronomic delights. Since 1998 Almuñécar has been hosting this event in Majuelo Park. It is part of the bigger campaign to support gastronomic tourism in Spain. Usually at least 30 local companies participate in the gastronomic feria. From hotels to restaurants, each will have a dedicated booth this event, to promote their establishments and show off their culinary skills.
The objective of the event is to promote the hospitality sector of Almuñécar – La Herradura, relying on the quality of its products, showing off the richness of the gastronomic skills of the municipality. You will also be able to enjoy many performances, dances, workshops, and music with a very festive atmosphere. This is a much an anticipated tourist attraction each year, with people coming from all over the region and coastal Spain.
When is the Feria Gastronomica?
It is usually a 3-day event in early June at the park. Every year it is well received and many people look forward to this event.
