Update: 10th of September 2018: Unfortunately the event is temporarily suspended due to governmental issues.
From the 7th to the 30th of September ‘La Feria de Marisco de Galicia’ or ‘The seafood fair of Galicia’ will take place in the port of Valencia.
The biggest seafood fair of Galicia comes to Valencia
Over 1,000 square meters, more than 60 tons of seafood, 10,000 bottles of Albariño (a delicious Spanish wine), and approximately 90,000 attendees. The numbers say it all. MarisGalicia is by far the biggest event of the Galician gastronomy in Spain. This great event starts tomorrow in Valencia for the sixth year in a row.
From Friday September 7 to the 30th of the same month Valencian locals, tourists, and students can enjoy the best seafood and fish brought directly from Galicia. The local specialties can be tasted in an ideal enclave for the occasion: in front of port 4 of the port of Valencia.
This event, which toured throughout Spain every year, focuses on the promotion of gastronomy, tourism and culture in Galicia.
To soak up the real Galician culture you should try the queso de tetilla, empanada, pulpo a feira, or one of the other delicious dishes.
The seafood is transported every day fresh from Galicia in refrigerated trucks to guarantee the freshness of the fish. In addition, the venue will recreate the atmosphere of the Galician markets and each stand will be specialized in a specific product from the area. There will be no lack of shellfish or Albariño (among other Galician wines) to live the Galician experience to the fullest.
To enjoy Galicia, you will have to travel to the port of Valencia, port number 4. The opening hours are from Monday to Sunday from 12:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and from 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
