VI Imoque Festival in San Sebastián

 

The festival is taking place next Saturday, June 8th, from midday

The Imoque Cultual Association is organising their 6th annual festival, which is taking place this Saturday, June 8th, in the Plaza San Sebastian in La Caleta, from midday. The aim of the festival is to underline the importance of Adeje’s cultural traits and traditions. This is an event that has consolidated the collective Adeje memory in a way that brings a modern public together annually.

The Imoque Cultural Association works hard to maintain and recover many of our older skills and traditions of yesteryear, memories that have formed part of the borough’s ethnographic archive, working to keep alive processes and traits that are lost or are on the point of disappearing.

During the day there will be a myriad of things to do and see, including a craft fair, tasting of local produce, a demonstration of ‘salto del pastor’ (the shepherd’s leap), Gomeran music, folkore of La Graciosa, Canarian wrestling, an exhibition of different breeds of dogs, and lots more.

The festival is open to the public with musical performances scheduled from ‘Parranda los Toledo’ and the Imoque Cultural Association.

The Imoque Cultural Association is supported by the Adeje council, who are dedicated to activities and groups dedicated to the rescue and preservation of local heritage and traditions.
