This year with a new layout but with the same aim as always, to showcase the best that we have to offer. In a venue tailor-made for the fair, the changes seek to create new dynamics, allowing exhibitors and visitors better opportunity to explore all of the senses and flavours of our region.
In the spirit of renovation, this year the fair will have five days full of entertainment, culture, folklore, music, displays of products from the municipality and from the region, crafts and much more – plenty of reasons to come and visit us.
Local dynamism will be represented with a display of the municipality’s agricultural and commercial activities. In pride of place will be the area’s principal products, melons and wine, thus celebrating the effort and dedication of local farmers.
In this history-filled fair, another highpoint will be the exhibition about Alpiarça and its people, on show in the economic activities pavilion.
As with previous editions, ALPIAGRA/2018 is a meeting point and a reunion point for friends and families, offering a variety of occasions to enjoy together, for all ages. Concerts with HMB, Fernando Daniel, Maria Lisboa, GNR, and the “Viagem ao interior”, with Casimira Alves, Diogo Carapinha and Rosildo Oliveira are just some of the reasons to visit us during the fair. We have much more to offer, allowing visitors to plan their itinerary according to their interests.
During the fair it will also be possible to get in touch with all of Alpiarça´s potential as a tourist destination. From the historical and architectural richness of the Casa dos Patudos, to the Cavalo do Sorraia Nature Reserve, via the unique Barragem dos Patudos – locations that will be represented at ALPIAGRA/2018 and which can and should be visited in situ in order to fully appreciate and enjoy their splendour. For all of these reasons, we look forward to seeing you at ALPIAGRA/2018 in Alpiarça from the 5 th to the 9 th of September.
Come and visit us.
