Christimas has arrived in Xixona
Publishing date 1/12/2014
Xixona, the most famous nougat city in the country, hosts from the 5th to the 8th of December the sixth edition of the Christmas Fair. There you can find the best Christmas treats, ice cream and, of course, the famous Spanish "turrón" (nougat). Come to Xixona this weekend and enjoy an early Christmas time.
The scene of the Christmas festival in Xixona is the Constitucion Avenue, better known as La Plaça. The town is flooded with Christmas atmosphere, with many stands of nougat and traditional sweets plus Christmas decorations, gift items and food products. All of this accompanied with activities, performances and workshops that enliven the fair days.
This fair is organized by the Town Council and the Association of local Businessmen, Traders and Professionals (AEX), and its first edition was celebrated in 2009. The Christmas Fair is a recovered tradition of a similar fair which was held over two hundred years ago.
The nougat, Christmas treats, ice cream, gastronomy and a variety of shops have become the visit card of an event that year after year has increased the number of visitors.
