The Councilor of Festivals of the Crevillent City Council, Antonio Candel Rives, presents this Thursday a new edition of the traditional Medieval Market under the motto “Crevillent Medieval”, which can be enjoyed on September 22, 23 and 24. In this that occasion, the participation of the general craft and gastronomy stalls doubled, as pointed out by the mayor of the area since “they went from about 30 stalls to almost 60 in this edition.”
This increase is due to the negative influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on this type of economic activity. “Crevillent Medieval” includes activities for all audiences such as a free playroom with wooden games, while there are movies to set the mood in the morning and afternoon. Event organizers have also scheduled a wood sculpture workshop and a Murano glass blowing workshop.
The coordinator of the event, Saúl Cerdá Flores, explained to the media that “in the Plaza de la Constitución there are different taverns, brasseries, creperie stands, mojito stands, spiral potato stands… So it is full of gastronomy. “. Thus, during the market route there are also cheese stalls, Galician bakeries, scented candles, incense and wooden toys. Cerdá added that the aerial decoration with flags will be strengthened and the performances that will be held will be changed.
This Medieval Market extends between the streets of Plaza de la Constitución and Blasco Ibáñez and Mayor, as well as the Plaza “Manuel Menargues”, in front of the town hall. In the Plaza de la Constitución there are two ecological attractions, including a carousel; The base camp will be located in the “Manuel Menargues” Plaza, where you will see an exhibition of weapons and also listen to explanations of how they are used, in addition to a participatory archery activity.
For his part, Toni Cerdá Lafuente, who manages the shows for the company that organizes the Medieval Market, stated that “there will be demonstrations of medieval battles that will show how they were then, also explain what life was like in a camp and there are people to help throw arrows.”
