Around 250 participants will be exhibiting their work at next weekend’s 26th annual, traditional Wirja Agrarja – Agricultural and Craft Fair, in Nadur.
More than 4,000 visitors are expected to attend the 2-day show which promises to be a feast for the eyes.
This year’s fair is organised by the Nadur Local Council and the Parliamentary Secretariat for Agriculture, Fisheries and Animal Rights.
Entertainment will be in the form of music and dance provided by by Greenfields, Spiru Sillato, the Mnarja Folk Group and Ta’ Cangura Folk Group.
The Council said that each participant at the fair will be given a memento of a local product, including those displaying the many different animals.
Nadur village will be alive with activity for the fair, being held on Saturday and Sunday, the 22nd and 23rd of June, as part of the celebrations for the feast of Imnarja.
Visitors to the fair will be able to enjoy a variety of events, including an exhibition of local farm products, livestock, crafts, artisans, antique farming tools, traditional ghana, as well as Gozitan food and wine tasting. Pets and livestock will be blessed on Sunday morning.
