The organizers have developed a website that will include detailed information and a direct link to the store of each of the participating turroneros. The main objective is to be able to buy artisan nougat online at the same price as at the fair.
The traditional virtual Christmas Fair will be held from December 4 to 8, 2020 (Constitution Day).
Origin of the Christmas Fair
More than 100 years ago, a christmas market of nougat and sweets in the population but the origin of the Christmas Fair was born from the concern of some merchants of the XXI century to sell their products directly to the consumer, since in the last decades sales had dropped considerably due to the large supermarkets.
After a few years and after much work, the Christmas and nougat fair became a reality and currently receives more than 95,000 people annually, reaching record numbers year after year and expanding the number of activities and exhibitors.
Possibly, the most special year was 2020 where after much effort and waiting, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, a Jijona Nougat Fair was held virtually, thus avoiding any danger of contagion and enjoying the Christmas spirit from home.
