The 675th edition of the Fira de Tots Sants de Cocentaina celebrates this weekend, from November 5 to 7, its second call. From Friday to Sunday, all the public who come to the city of Barcelona will be able to enjoy a larger exhibition area (70.500 m2) in which two of the great commercial potentials of the event will meet, the automotive and industrial machinery and the typical products of food and Designation of Origin. The Passeig del Comtat and the Avenida País Valencià will be the two roads in which the vehicle and machinery exhibitions will be concentrated, which will have more exhibition meters per plot and more products in each of them, so that visitors can access them comfortably and without crowds.
For its part, the agri-food sector will be located in Pla and Venerable Escuder squares as well as Jaume I and Sant Francesc streets. In these spaces you can find sausages, salted meats, cheeses, sweets, dates, nuts and other typical products of the contest. It should be noted that, during these days, the northern part of the municipality, corresponding to the old town, will not have an exhibition offer. It will be centered in the upper part of Cocentaina since it offers larger spaces to be able to locate this week's product, generally large.
