Agenda Municipal / Parties, Fairs and Pilgrims S. Miguel Grand Fair

Thu 29 to Sun 02 Oct
Mouzinho de Albuquerque Square | 8h00

The S. Miguel Grand Fair is one of the oldest traditions of the municipality. Instituted in 1205, the Grand Fair is intimately linked to the origins of the municipality, namely the agricultural activity, the traditions, uses and customs and the identity of Famalicão. In addition to all the surroundings, the fair brings together farmers, artisans and the famous taverns, offering the most genuine and traditional products of the municipality. Strictly dressed, the merchants bring with them bovine and equine animals, the freshest vegetables, the tastiest eggs and the most tender chickens from their backyard, in a real trip to the past, when everything was "homemade" and biological.
