Highly coveted in our field, rain arrived as late as FEAGA, instead of the usual low rainfall we have in Fuerteventura.
At its twenty-ninth edition, the most important agricultural and livestock Canary fair, gathers 200 exhibitors in more than 8,000 square meters; a figure that does'nt do justice to the embellishment of its corners, extraordinarily reconstructed for this appointment.
The president of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, Mario Cabrera, the mayor of Antigua, Genara Ruiz, the Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Cabildo, Rita Diaz, and the General Director of Livestock Canary Islands government, Juan Pedro Davila, inaugurated FEAGA 2015 emphasizing the high potential of local products, experimental crops and other developments such as the horse show acclimated in the fifteenth century.
Animal lovers are also in luck!! Native breeds such as "majorero" chicken, donkey and dog, and also other exotic animals will be exhibited at the stand of the Oasis Park Fuerteventura zoo. This stand surprises every year with "participatory look". Stands, tastings, lovestock contests, cheese... and lots of prizes!
With over fifty activities planned for three intense days, and the sound of popular music by the majorero Timbeque, among others, we are breathing a wonderful party atmosphere.
Fuerteventura will leave aside the leadership of its beaches, to give more emphasis to other of its attractions: tradition, culture and sustainability. A fight that sadly occur while the oil spill in south waters of Gran Canaria and the disastrous consequences for wildlife in the area.
