Castalla postpones the San Isidro Fair and will look for a new date with the sectors involved

2-April-2020
  • The City Council has cancelled the celebration of the Hogueras de San Francisco also because of the spread of the Coronavirus

The fair of San Isidro de Castalla, scheduled for 15,16 and 17 May, will not be held, at least not on these dates. The Castalla Town Hall has decided to postpone the celebration of this weekend, which is full of activities, according to the situation of global pandemic due to the coronavirus (Covid-19). Likewise, the consistory has decided to cancel the celebration of the Hogueras de San Francisco, planned for the second week after Easter. “The decision has been taken following common sense, health recommendations and political guidelines,” said the mayor of the town, Antonio Bernabeu.

For the moment, the Council has not set any alternative date for the organization of the Fair in the future. Before taking this resolution, the government team wants to meet with the opposition parties and the business and social agents most directly involved in the San Isidro Fair, such as the shopkeepers, the car workshop and other local associations. These meetings will be held when circumstances permit, once the State of Alert has been terminated by the Central Government.

As far as the Hogueras de San Francisco are concerned, the Councillor for Festivals, Noelia Álvarez, has assured that, as the situation progresses, “it will be decided whether a new date will be proposed or definitively suspended, to be held again in 2021″.

Regional importance

The San Isidro Fair, which is expanding in the historical centre of Castalla, will be celebrating its 28th anniversary this year. Last year the exhibition brought together more than 200 exhibitors, between the Medieval Market and the Sectorial Fair, with a budget of 90,000 euros from the City Council. It also offered a wide range of leisure, trade, culture, gastronomy and tourism for people of all ages.

So we will have to wait to see if this year we can enjoy the Fair of San Isidro in Castalla, an event that attracts residents from all over the region and province to the capital of the Foia de Castalla.
