 L'Aplec del Caragol Snail Festival. What's on in Spain in May.
 
 
 

12 tons of snails are consumed every year at the Leida snail festival. Held every year in the city of Leida, Catalonia, Spain. The Aplec del Caragol Snail Festival is a gastronomy fair centred on dishes cooked with snails and is held every year in late May in the city of Lleida, in Catalonia. This passion for snails and the gastronomic  event holds the status of Festival of National Tourism Interest and National Festival of Traditional Interest, dates back to 1980, when a group of friends cooked up a snail feast on the banks of the river Segre, in Lleida (Catalonia).

 12 tons of snails cooked and consumed in three days is a challenging event. All Aplec meals feature snails as their main ingredient. The festival site includes a tasting area where everyone can try a variety of snails at affordable prices.

The Aplec also runs a wide-ranging program of gastronomy-based activities: shows, music by street bands, open-air dances, dancing and human towers performances, fun competitions, etc. All for free and open to everyone.
