Fira Calp, the fair of gastronomy and commerce in the town of the Rock, celebrates its tenth edition that will take place from the 24th to 27th May in the Plaza Mayor.

"Both the catering and business sectors are two very powerful sectors in Calp, we want to continue offering this quality offer all together in this fair and for all the visitors to the region," said José Malagón.


On the other hand, catering services will offer a greater number of tapas, between four and five per stand, compared to the three of the previous editions, at popular prices, from 1 to 4 Euros. The Fishermen's Association will also present at the fair, in addition to the traditional Peix de Calp, new products such as sausage and octopus and drum burgers made with sea ingredients.
