The Imoque Cultural Association, formed in Adeje in 2013, will host a festival tomorrow (Saturday June 9th) in San Sebastián, a showcase, the association says, for the borough’s cultural roots and heritage.
The association has worked, since its inception, to keep and promote Adeje’s traditions and folklore. Tomorrow’s event will see a display of indigenous animal breeds with the collaboration of local farmers as well as hosting craft and artisan stands, food stalls and Canarian folk music and dance.
The Imoque festival is an excellent meeting place for residents, visitors, lovers of folk music and craft, and also works to bring together those who live here with those who see our borough as their top choice holiday destination.
Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, councillor with responsibility for creative development in the borough, says, “the work that this group, and similar associations, is carrying out, reflects the commitment the people of Adeje have to their traditions, and here in the council we are very happy to support this drive to recover our cultural roots”
From midday tomorrow there will be an arts and crafts fair and food stalls with local products as well as local animal breeds on show. At 12.30 people can enjoy a demonstration of different cultural activities, a workshop on gofio (toasted grain) with the H10 Gran Tinerfe chef Esteban Gómez. The afternoon will also feature sheep shearing, Gomeran whistling, Canarian wrestling, and much more.
Event will run throughout the day with music, dance, food and drink until 11pm.
