Visits to the bell tower, the main novelty of the Agricultural Fair of Vila-rodona

The Agricultural Fair of Vila-rodona reaches its 629th edition with an outstanding novelty: visits to the bell tower of the municipality. Until now it was not possible to go up to the public level and the City Council, together with the parish, has launched these visits during the fair, which have already covered all the squares.

“The inscriptions have been collapsed”, explains the mayor of Vila-rodona, Ramon M. Bricollé. This fact has been the "starting point" to soon offer a schedule of visits to see the bell tower, according to Bricollé.

This year's edition of the Agricultural Fair, which is being held from today until Monday, is the first without any restrictions due to Covid-19. “We are aware that there is a before and after the pandemic. In 2020 it could not be done, in 2021 it was done halfway and this year we have tried to put all the meat on the grill so that a fair can come out like the editions before the pandemic, ”says the mayor.

This year there are also activities already established in recent editions, such as today's Nit Jove, which will feature a performance by the Vizuri group and DJ Dani. Tomorrow at noon Joan M. Basora Robert, director of Sustainability and Corporate Development of the Port Authority of Tarragona, will deliver the proclamation and in the afternoon the traditional correfoc will take place by the Devils of Vila-rodona. At night, the magic gala, one of the great attractions of the fair, will close the day at the Casal Cinema.

On Sunday at one o'clock

the afternoon, castellera day with the two colles vallenques

The protagonists on Sunday will be the castle festival at one in the afternoon, with performances by the Colla Joves Xiquets de Valls and the Colla Vella de los Xiquets de Valls, and the fireworks on the football field.

Finally, musical shows, street theater by the 1900 Fair group, children's activities, stalls and exhibitions close a program that aims to fully recover the essence of the Agricultural Fair. “The program is varied. We always try, despite maintaining those more historic traditions, to make the entire population happy, "emphasizes the mayor.

gastronomic activities

The Agricultural Fair of Vila-rodona stands out for the diversity of gastronomic events. The mayor affirms that it is "a special fair", not only for the vila-rodonins and the vila-rodonines, but also for "the entire territory". The fair dinner will become the first date today in the Casal room and tomorrow it will be the turn of the midday musical vermouth in the Plaza de los Arbres.

The traditional popular beans and herring breakfast also return, two activities typical of the Agricultural Fair. After the success of past editions, the Tastets activity, with local wine tastings and tapas accompanied by music in a small format, has almost all the inscriptions sold out.

Although the weather forecasts predict good weather for the weekend, the town hall confirms that the fairgrounds will be reserved in case gastronomic activities such as herring breakfast, musical vermouth or beans have to be held indoors.
