Christmas fair cancelled

Algarve Natal, a Christmas fair that was due to take place on the first weekend of December at Centro de Congressos do Arade in Parchal, has been cancelled.

Organiser Rolf Osang of Arte Algarve told the Algarve Resident: “This is sad news. Only very few artisans and artists registered for the fair. I guess it’s hard times everywhere.”  

Algarve Natal was expected to bring together Christmas traditions from all over Europe and collect gifts to be distributed to underprivileged children in the region.
