Gastronomy festival

A festival to celebrate Algarve gastronomy and handicrafts is being held at the old Convento de São Francisco in Faro on May 24 and 25, from 7pm to 1am.

Entitled ‘Festival Gastronómico: Sentidos & Tradições 2013’, the event, now in its third year, is being organised by the Escola de Hotelaria e Turismo do Algarve and will showcase a variety of regional products such as olive oil, honey, cheese, liqueurs, typical fruits (figs, carobs and orange) and sweets made with locally produced ingredients. Artisans will be displaying their works while live Portuguese music will entertain the crowds.

Entry cost €1 per person. Proceeds from the event are in aid of the Faro Red Cross.
