There are lots of interesting events on this month, my favourite is on the 5th –  International Laughter Day.  

The old adage that laughter is the best medicine still holds true, particularly with everything that is going on in the world at the moment.
So on the 5th, think of something that amuses you, have a chuckle and put a smile on your face, it is infectious, and soon you will see others smiling and laughing with you.

FEAGA

2024-FEAGA Sm

!6 – 19 FEAGA, the Agricultural, Livestock and Fishing Fair of Fuerteventura is here at the Pozo Negro Experimental Farm:
This is an annual event which as well as being an agricultural show showcases many of the traditional skills and crafts of the Island.

It includes wrestling, dancing, music, traditional cooking demos, cheese making and judging and many other activities.
Saturday and Sunday are the best times for visits and for you to experience some of the traditions of the Island.

Dia de Canarias

The big event of this month is on the 30th May – this is Dia de Canarias – Day of the Canary Islands, and it marks the anniversary of Canarian Independence.
This is a public holiday and everybody dresses in traditional costumes and gathers at the Plaza.
There are lots of tables and chairs laid out and families and friends all bring food and wine for the celebrations.

The entertainment lasts all day and into the night with traditional dancing, singing and music.

Even if you can’t understand the singing, you will understand the emotions and enjoy traditional music and colourful dance displays, basically it is just a big party – and everybody is welcome to join in..
