Today there was a  press release from the Association of Entrepreneurs and Traders of Antigua (AECA):

We wish to inform you that we are currently promoting, in collaboration with the Ayuntamiento of Antigua the celebration of Gastronomic Week 2017 from the 20 to the 25 of November in Caleta de Fuste. 

Among the objectives of our Association is the dynamization of the tourist offer of the Municipality; and this is why we consider this event of utmost importance, since it will favour the business fabric giving greater variety to the leisure offer and creating a different environment for the enjoyment of both neighbors and tourists who visit us. All of which will encourage a greater influx of people to our beautiful municipality.

The Association as organizer of the event, wishes to make a call to all the gastronomic premises of Caleta de Fuste to join this initiative and participate in it. 

The locals participating in the Gastronomic Week will offer at the entrance a typical aperitif so that the public can taste and offer typical local menus with a maximum price of € 25 (drinks not included). 

The last night of the Gastronomic Week will have a special character and will be called: "Castillo de noche - Castillo by night". It will be held from 19:00 until 01:00. There will be 9 musical groups divided by the following points:

 El Castillo Shopping Center / Barceló ð 2.

Atlántico Shopping Center ð 1.

Happy Center ð 1.

Broncemar ð 1.

Los Geranios ð 1.

La Fuente area ð 1.

Pedestrian zone (Los Arcos) ð 1.

You will also contact the shops (shops) to stay open until 23:30 and illuminated until 01:00.

Various advertising actions will be carried out to promote the event, posters and radio announcements will be made with publicity of the participating venues at the event at no cost to them. Properly with the intention of carrying out a control of participation, we ask that those establishments that wish to participate send confirmation to the AECA administration through the above mentioned contact channels before October 23. 

For the above, we hope to have your participation in the Gastronomic Week 2017. Event that we believe to be beneficial for both the entrepreneurs participating in the same as the neighbors and tourists who visit us.

Sadly not happening this year. I asked Debbie Edgington what the situation was and hear is her reply.

Dear Ian,


I´m afraid at the moment this event will be postponed due to the delay from the Commercial department of the Cabildo, I was hoping to have received extra financial help from their department but they have still not confirmed anything to us, so I´m hoping to re-schedule the event until next year.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Kind regards,

Thanks for that Ian.  I knew I hadn't seen any advertising for it.

The Cabildo seem to be supporting a similar event in Corralejo this week.
