The coming Sundays, the weekly craft fair in La Nucía offers not only original craft work, but also juggling and puppet shows. On 12 May juggler/faquir Ozi K Pwedo will be there and on the 19th you can learn to make soap in a workshop at 12:45 a.m. while puppets Maxi and Dixi play their musical instruments.
Every week another group of crafts people will show and sell their work: potters, leather workers, silver smiths, a blacksmith, a bookbinder, someone making wooden toys and puzzles, others painting curtains and cushions or making beautiful sculptures. Some 40 artists and craft people take turns to offer more variety. This way Amata, the organizing craft association, tries to establish a meeting point where people looking for original hand made goods can find them and actually talk with the craftmen and women.
Some ten or twelve stalls are set up every Sunday morning from 10 am till 2 pm in front of the Town Hall. In the month of May you can also see the children that do their First Communion in the church on the same square. There is also a tourist information stand, where you can join the free guided tours through the Old Town, starting at 11, 12 and 1 o’clock. Fair and guided tours are a nice extension to your visit to the weekly boot sale (rastro) or can be combined with an excursion into the interior, as La Nucía is on the road to places like Guadalest, the Fuentes del Algar, Tárbena or Polop.
