On Saturday and Sunday the swing group will return and teach everyone who wants to join in the fun to dance. On Friday and Sunday there will be a puppet theatre, and for Saturday afternoon/evening, the City Council has organised a drum parade (Butakada), performances by the Municipal School of Dance, a Giant Pizza and the fair ends that day with a nostalgic concert of The Liverpool Band with a tribute to The Beatles.

At this fair there will be nothing that is imported or made in a factory, just more than twenty stalls with ceramics and pottery, soaps, wooden toys and stuffed animals, turned and carved wood, and leather belts and bags, all hand made by the participants.

You can watch various artisans and artists at work, or try to make a vase or bowl on the potter's wheel. And if you can't find what you're looking for, the artisans can make it to order.

The fair will be set up around the Plaza Blanca in Ciudad Quesada and the opening hours will be: Friday 12 May, from 6pm until 9pm; Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 May from 11am until 9pm (or later), without closing at midday.

This is the third time that Amata has organised a fair in Ciudad Quesada. Photos of last year's fair and the complete programme can be found at
