Caudete (Albacete)

29 September – 1 October

San Miguel festivities Arts and Crafts Fair

Due to last year's success, we are once again setting up our original Arts and Crafts fair in the center of Caudete (Plaza de la Iglesia, Calle Mayor and Plaza del Carmen), with craft demonstrations, workshops for children, storytelling and puppet shows, board games, a merry-go-round and a very pleasant atmosphere.

We celebrate Amata's 25th anniversary with a competition of unique pieces, made by the fair's participants. We invite you to stop by the stalls, look at the pieces in the contest and vote for the piece you like best.

In addition, guided tours of medieval Caudete and chess activities are organized.

We open on Friday 29 September from 6 till 9 pm; on Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October opening times are from 11 am till 2 pm and then again from 6 till 9 pm.

The photographs on this page are from last year's fair and here you will find more information (but only in Spanish) about the event.
