THE Covid situation has improved to such an extent that Oliva has decided to celebrate its traditional Fair and Fiestas.

This will be held between June 18 and 20 in four different areas to avoid large gatherings, with Avenida de Lluis Vives reserved for an Arts and Crafts fair which opens on Friday June 18 at 5 pm.

Thirty craftspeople are expected to set up their stalls in the section in front of the Mercado Municipal covered market.


On Saturday June 19 and Sunday June 20 the fair will be open from 11 am until 2 pm and between 5pm and 10 pm, although closing a little earlier on the last day.

Concerts, shows, activities for children and a book and literature fair will be held in Paseo de Jaume I, Parque de la Estación and the Centro Polivalente.

Oliva’s Fiestas councillor Yolanda Navarro asked Amata to organise the craft fair, as this craft association guarantees that only original craft work, handmade by the participants themselves, will be on sale.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
