Something else to do while in Orihuela is to visit the fairs, whether on the coast or in the Vega Baja, and in this way take part in our community events. When talking about fairs, we are talking about exhibitions of all types, some showing many items, other just two.
Don?t think that they are like the typical fairs in the rest of Andalucía, what we are talking about are exhibitions that are generally held in buildings or tents like Trade Fairs, or even outside, along the city?s main streets, or in gardens and boulevards that allow for this type of event.
At present and due to the crisis, more and more of these fairs are cropping up, there is also more diversity, therefore there are tapas fairs, outlet fairs, antique fairs, education and work fairs, youth fairs, second hand vehicle fairs?
In all of these fairs, the aim is to promote sales and for businesses to sell off their stock, when talking about food fairs, the final aim is to find and entertain people who know and enjoy good cuisine, who are visiting the city or area where the fair is held, and to help food establishments and create a consumer that is loyal to this type of event in the area, or tourists that visit frequently, just to enjoy the cuisine that?s on offer.
In the Vega Baja region, these types of events are held often and our town holds plenty of them. So we advice that if there are fairs in Orihuela while you are there, take part, you will be helping the town, and small local businesses that are really suffering at the moment; whenever possible always buy local produce from local businesses.
