Port Christmas Fair 2011


Port hosts Christmas fair and rewards customers with redeemable vouchers for rides and attractions

Event to run from Saturday December 3rd to Tuesday December 6th

Javea. Thursday, 1 December 2011.

The shops of Port of Javea, in collaboration with the Department of Economic Development, is hosting a special fair during the long holiday weekend of the “Constitución” in which everyone will be able to enjoy the shopping, entertainment and children's activities and start soaking up the Christmas spirit. According to the president of the Aduanas del Mar Business and Trade Association (ACEAM), Geovanny Sanchez, this year they have chosen to feature local craftsmen who make their own products rather than bring in outside craftsmen. The businesses in the Port have also decided to reward customers who make purchases upwards of 15 euros with gift vouchers redeemable for horse and buggy rides, bouncy castles or a giant ball that children can enter and, with adult supervision, roll around the Plaza Jaume I, where the fair is to be held.

The local shops, bars and restaurants that participate will be easily recognized thanks to the red carpet at the door and the stars they will place in their windows. These include an array of clothing and accessories shops, jewelry shops, gift and decoration, perfumeries, hairdressers and beauty salons, bookshops, food shops and delicatessens. The restaurateurs of the Port in Marina Española, Andrés Lambert and Cristo del Mar will also be offering special Christmas fair menus from Saturday December 3rd to Tuesday December 6th, from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm and from 5.00 to 8.00 pm.

At the fair based in the Plaza Jaume I, visitors will also be able to shop at the artisan posts from the Arenal or the Bruja Etreus magic shop, or enjoy savouries from the Oliva Negra mobile snack bar, which will be offering crepes, soups, hot chocolate and wine. With Christmas decorations and the sound of carols in the air, the fair will host the first visit by one of the postmen of the Magi, who have already begun collecting letters from children. Finally, there will also be stands dedicated to charities such as the Red Cross and Caritas del Puerto.
