Sea Urchin festival Margarita Island





Food Festivals:  

On Margarita Island, during the weekends, we celebrate food activities all year long. In some towns you will find events related to local specialties, such as: Sea Urchin Fair in Laguna de Raya, Fish Soup Fair in Juan Griego, Mussel Fair in La Guardia, Octopus Fair in Playa El Angel, Sea food soup (Fosforera) Fair in Pampatar, and so on. In October, Margarita Gastronómica, a group of businesspeople and cooks, prepares and offers a whole month of activities related to the good living. In Margarita, there are several cooking schools. In La Asuncion, you can visit a food/hand crafts fair on Saturday afternoons and evenings.
