Dried fruits fair returns to Alcantarilha

The small town of Alcantarilha, Silves, is again staging the Dried Fruits Fair, now in its 12th year, between August 30 and September 2. The event promises to be the town’s main attraction for the summer season.

The fair, which will be taking place next to the local parish council, will attempt to promote and develop the production of dried fruits by bringing together the gastronomic quality of the local sweets and snacks and traditional handicrafts into one single event.

Entertainment will not be in short supply at the fair. Every day after 8pm, musical performances by national artists will complement the programme.

Schedules for the three days vary. On August 30, the fair will be opening doors at 6.30pm and closing at 2am while the following day will begin at 5pm and conclude at 2am. The closing day will commence at 5pm and end at midnight.

Prices vary from €1 to visit the fair for one day and €2 for a three-day ticket.
