Arts & Crafts in Adeje

 

Adeje-XIII Feria de Artesania (30)

Adeje’s Plaza de España hosts the annual Arts & Crafts fair tomorrow, Saturday May 17th and Sunday May 18th, with a series of parallel events taking place in the Plaza and around the town.

Over 70 stands will be in place, most of them displaying arts and craft wares or food produce. The Cruz Roja, the Cabildo ‘Recíclope’ campaign and the Los Olivos Centre will also have stands, as well the Adeje Clean and Healthy promotion which will mark the end of this particular campaign.

According to the councillor for culture, Nayra Medina Bethencourt, “the Arts & Crafts fair is a very important event for Adeje and provides a showcase for traditional handicrafts from the island”.
Stands will show and sell everything from ornaments, clothing, jewellery, toys and dolls, woodwork, glassware, and paintings. Visitors will also have the opportunity to taste cakes, biscuits and other local delicacies including island honey, breads, cheeses, and much more.

The fair is open to the public from 10am to 9pm on Saturday and 10am to 8pm on Sunday with free entry. During the two days there will also be a number of folklore performances by Isogue, the Boleros de Armeñime, the Imoque Cultural Association and the Municipal School of Folklore.

In parallel the council will also be congratulating the winners of the schools pets photo competition, which was part of the Adeje Clean and Healthy campaign. Children will receive their prize on Saturday in the Plaza de España after a short puppet show by the Garabato company who have toured local schools with the show. There will also be a small mural prepared by children visiting the fair under the supervision of the Cruz Roja.
Other activities taking place around the town include an exhibition of hunting dogs in the section of ground opposite El Galeón as you drive into Adeje from the motorway. This is happening at 12 noon on Saturday and is open to the public. On Sunday, at noon, in the Plaza de España there will also be a demonstration from the owners and dogs who have been taking part in the council’s Dog Obedience classes in recent months.
