La Nucia will hold its fourth Exponucia this weekend Saturday October 7 – Monday October 9 to coincide with the Dia de la Comunidad Valenciana.

The event will be held in the Camilo Cano municipal sports centre.

It started off as a local trade fair and has grown in the past four years to attract more and more people from across the entire community.

The event will host more than 80 stalls, with local businesses offering something for everyone.

Outside, there will be a children’s playground and the ever-popular ‘Oktoberfest’ marquee offering a selection of beers for the adults to enjoy.

This year, the event also welcomes the original ‘Amata’ craft fair, from the same association known for organising the medieval market in La Nucia:

20 or more craftsmen and women will offer a wide variety of quality hand made goods, from traditional pottery to wooden and soft toys, from lamps made of drift wood to ceramic castles, and jewellery of many different materials: silver, macramé, leather, wood, silk and glass.

Amata has spent the last 20 years or so organising the medieval markets as a way of helping to preserve the arts and crafts in Spain.

Many of the craftsmen and women will give live demonstrations, offering an insight into how their products are made.

Visitors can even try their hand at the potter’s wheel and make their own little bowl to take home.

Exponucia opens to the public every day from 10.00am – 9.00pm.

Entrance is free and there is plenty of parking available.
