Wooden it be nice! Adeje Arts and Crafts



The Fair takes place on Saturday May 16th and Sunday May 17th in the town’s Plaza España

The Adeje Arts and Crafts Fair, organised by the local department of culture, will focus on work in woodcraft this year, with demonstrations in other specialities also scheduled over the weekend of May 16th and 17th in the town’s Plaza España.

From 10am in the morning to 9pm on both days there will be a series of activities open to the public, with activities for young children scheduled for the morning hours, craft workshops with trained monitors from the Convivencia project.

Music will also feature during the two day event with performances from Grupo Boleros from Armeñime on Saturday at 12.30, and students and musicians from the Adeje Folklore school from 7pm. On Sunday the Parranda from Grupo Boca del Paso will entertain the public in the morning and that evening José Manuel Ramos will perform ‘Desde adentro’ at 8pm.

The Adeje Arts and Crafts Fair has been an annual event since 2000, with over 100 stalls selling Canarian crafts and hand-made goods to the public, made by artists and artisans not just from Adeje but from all over Tenerife and the other Canarian Islands. Many of the stalls celebrate the use of traditional craft methods, using materials such as wicker, wood, glass, resin and fabric, producing a range of items for sale including traditional clothing, jewellery, carpets and hangings, musical instruments, and food items such as honey and cheeses and a firm favourite, the traditional biscuits and cakes.
