Fira de Sant Andreu in Cabanes

Castellon de la Plana

25th to 27th November
Over 25,000 people will travel to Cabanes on the last weekend in November to take part in the Fira Agrícola de Sant Andreu (Saint Andrew’s Agricultural Fair), the second oldest agricultural fair in the province of Castellón and one of the most traditional fairs in the Region of Valencia. From 25th to 27th November, the fair programme lists a host of activities including photographic exhibitions, a vintage car show and the first Meeting of Wine Producers from the Province of Castellón.
This year, Cabanes will be celebrating the 504th edition of the Fira, which dates back to the times of Queen Germaine of Foix, the second wife of Ferdinand II of Aragon, who in the year 1507 granted the village the privilege of hosting two annual fairs, one to celebrate the second Sunday in Lent and the other, which survives to this day, on the last weekend in November. Although the fair started out as a meeting place for farmers to buy and sell male animals, and kicked off the Christmas festivities with stalls displaying different varieties of turrón (nougat), it has now become one of the main markets for agricultural and farming machinery.
