King Prawn Gastronomic Festival Vinaros
King Prawn Gastronomic Festival Vinaros-Fiesta del Langostino
Festival Date: 09-08-2015
Follow in Salvador Dalí’s footsteps, and come to this wonderful foodie fiesta …he did in 1965! Just in case you didn’t know it, Vinaros is famous for its prawns! And so since 1963 there has been a King Prawn Gastronomic Festival here in Vinaros, that is a must to come to if you like prawns.
Organised by the Department of Tourism, this combines both king prawns, and artisan bakery and cava (Spain’s champagne). There are tickets available for this at the Tourist Information, which is easy to spot on the main promenade. You can either buy individual tasting tickets for €2 or €5, or go for the whole experience which costs €85 for 6 people for 1kg of prawns, artisan bakery and 2 bottles of cava.
These tastings take place along the fine promenade of Vinaros, and the event is considered one of the most traditional, yet special gastronomic events of the Valencian Community. Be part of the big, but very happy crowd that enjoy these local gastronomic delights. Depending on the year there are somewhere between 200 to 300 kilos eaten by those attending this gastronomic festival.
