This is a traditional fair dedicated to the anchovy.
The tradition includes: an opening speech by a person connected with the
anchovy trade; the award of the golden anchovy for a person/entity that has promoted the anchovies of l’Escala during the year; a Habaneras concert on the beach and a taster for the public of anchovies of l’Escala.
The weeks leading up to the fair there is the highly popular
Anchovy Tapa Trail. Dozens of local bars offer their best tapas made of anchovy and you can have your “passport” stamped in each place you go to, so that you are in with a chance of winning some worthwhile prizes at the end. This is an activity best enjoyed in a group, where everyone enjoys a unique gourmet experience.
