Nabirat Strawberry Fair

It happens every year (or almost every year). On this day, our little village of 350 inhabitants welcomes more than 3000 visitors, or even more if the sun is shining. The attraction of the day is this mouth-watering giant strawberry tart of 30 m2 which is set up under the village hall. Its preparation requires about 350 kilos of strawberries (harvested in Nabirat of course!). Beware, the slices on sale all day long disappear very quickly!

Around the market hall, local producers and artists will present their specialities on their stands, with a priority given to strawberries of course. Other entertainment is planned all day long for young and old. Discover the whole programme with its novelties and surprises on the Facebook page: facebook.com/FoiredelaFraisedeNabirat
