Update 29 September: I was there today, this is a really good arts and crafts fair/market with some special stalls. There is sculpture from Peru, leather from the Andes, chess sets from Morocco, jewellery from Argentina, and that’s without mentioning ceramics from Portugal or silverware from Barcelona, let alone some fantastic stalls from the Canaries themselves. If you were in any doubt, give it a go … check out official photos HERE.
Update 26 September: This major arts and crafts fair is all set now for its opening tomorrow. The above picture released by the Cabildo shows the extent of the fair. This is a big one!
Original post 17 September:The 3rd Feria Tricontinental de Artesanía will be held between 27 September and 5 October in the carpark area on the sea front between the Conquistador hotel and Parque Santiago 1. The major fair has been organized by the Tenerife Cabildo and Arona Ayuntamiento and preparations, including the huge tents of more than 2,000 square metres, are already well underway.
The artisan fair brings together arts and crafts from three continents – Africa, America and Europe, particularly Spain and Portugal. The previous two fairs have attracted over 100,000 visitors, and organizers say that they hope this time will be even better for the more than 200 artisans who will be displaying at the fair. Entry is free, and doors open between 10am and 9pm.
