26 and 27 November

One of the city’s most traditional fairs, where you can sample the different olive oils produced in the protected Designation of Origin of Siurana.

Held in Plaça Corsini, the fair features more than a dozen cooperatives from five different counties, showcasing some of the most delicious olive oil varieties in Catalonia.

The programme includes tasting sessions for children and adults, afternoon tea, a vermouth-and-olive-oil tasting session for charity at midday on Saturday, and live music to celebrate the arrival of the new olive oil. Other noteworthy events include the traditional “your weight in olive oil” competition, with the collaboration of Tarragona’s Central Market, and an educational tasting session that gets everyone at the fair involved. There will also be workshops and show-cooking sessions, with Txaber Allué, aka El Cocinero Fiel, and Francesc Blanc, to demonstrate the versatility of DOP Siurana extra-virgin olive oil and the wealth of up-to-date and innovative uses it offers. Plus ten draws for 10 lots of olive oil per draw.

Opening hours:

  • Friday:  noon - 9 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. - 9 p.m.
