The Threshing Festival

The 5th Threshing Festival

The village of Abla has recovered a tradition that was lost in the 1990s, when many field workers were replaced by machines. You will experience an intensive, enjoyable and festive day, featuring one of the most important agricultural works in the area – manually threshing the grain from the straw.

Apart from the threshing experience you will also have the chance to try the local food from stalls offering traditional regional delicacies.  There will be a competition for the best gazpacho, as well as samples of the local olive oil and tomatoes.

The Abulense Gastronomic Association will provide a bar offering tapas and drinks while the charanga band  La Jarra Fria entertains us with live music.

And there will be one more thing to enjoy: an eco food market.

This festival is a very welcoming special event for those who love Spanish villages and their nuanced characteristics.

 We recommend: wear comfortable clothing and footwear, and bring sun protection such as a cap or a hat, and sun screen.
