Raw Fruit Festival Andalusia Spain 2017
August 27, 2017 - September 2, 2017Eu480 – Eu590
The 2017 Raw Fruit Festival will be taking place from August 27 to September 2, 2017 at the camp San Juan, Jubrique, Andalusia.
Come enjoy the best season in the South of Spain. Come for the week to an Andalusian valley known for its well-preserved nature, and its rivers with swimming holes. It will be held at the end of the Summer, with plenty of sun, delicious and abundant locally grown tropical and Mediterranean fruits, and with great like-minded people! What else can one ask for?!
Our Festival is based on the idea of meeting new friends and sharing, in a natural environment, the best local fruits. The Festival will be held at the beginning of September, when the fig season is at its best, when the melons are everywhere, and when mangoes, papayas and litchis are really bursting with flavour. As farmers ourselves, we are able to find the best quality fruit picked truly ripe.
The Festival is totally raw, vegan and the use of tobacco, alcohol or drugs does not fit in the spirit of the festival. Anyone bringing in or consuming such products during the Festival will be asked to leave.
The Festival will be held in a campground located between the villages of Jubrique and Algatocín, two typical white Andalusian villages, located in the Genal Valley.
The campground is on the Genal River, known in the region for the quality and the quantity of its waters. You will be amazed to find such green luscious scenery and so much water after travelling through the rest of Andalusia and Spain at that time of year.
The Genal Valley is renowned for the quality of its environmental preservation, and provides an important year-round water supply allowing vegetation and rivers to thrive, even at the end of the summer.
To come join us the closest airport is in Málaga, with daily flights from all over Europe. We will organise a shuttle from the airport to the Festival (about 3 hour ride), so that you do not have to worry about the trip from the airport, and so that you can start meeting people. You can also come by train to Ronda, then take the daily bus Ronda-Algatocín-Genalguacil-Jubrique, leaving Ronda at 13h45 and arriving at the festival at 15h. Please note that the bus does not run on weekends.
Otherwise, you can come on your own (car, bike, …), but keep in mind that this is a mountainous region.
