The Town Council of Camacha promotes the XXXIII Edition of the Apple Festival, on October 20 and 21, 2018, at Largo Conselheiro Aires de Ornelas.
Celebrated since the 70’s of last century, the Festival of the Apple aims to celebrate the predominant fruit in our parish, having been originally promoted by the Parish of Camacha, with a view to raising funds for the Church and to the aid of needy families of the parish.
Nowadays this ephemerality promotes at regional, national and international level the parish of Camacha in its entire splendour, as well as the production of the apple.
The program for this event includes diversified social, cultural and sporting activities, with the participation of personalities, groups and regional artists.
On the 20th, at 5:00 p.m., an ethnographic procession of the apple will be carried out, starting at the Igreja Matriz and ending at Largo Conselheiro Aires de Ornelas (usually known as Largo da Achada), with the participation of the different living forces of the parish.
In Largo, it will be possible to taste, during the days of the event, the delicious juice of the apple, produced in a traditional way in the wine press, through the press / apple pie carried out incessantly by the members of the Group of Ancient Pilgrimages of the Rochão.
In addition to the traditional stalls for children and infants, we will provide animations for children, especially inflatables, pedal go-karts, among other attractions.
