The Festival Frigiliana 3 Culturas, will be held between August 24 and 27, 2017, is a mixture of party and culture that was born in 2006 with the idea of promoting the town with a major tourist event in the province.
The Festival Frigiliana 3 Culturas combines culture, gastronomy, music, theater … in an amalgam of activities that make up each edition and literally brings thousands of people to Frigiliana.
The route of the cover is without doubt one of the activities that more participation congregates. Gastronomy is also present in the gastronomic days. Each year several restaurants in the village prepare menus specifically designed for the festival, thus giving importance to Sephardic, Arabic or Christian food, and can taste dishes that are not usually on the menus of restaurants.
This Festival is lived in the street, and revolves around a nerve center that is the Market of 3 Cultures.
With more than 150 seats located in the heart of the historical center of Frigiliana, this is the place we will inevitably pass if we visit Frigiliana during the festival days. But the festival goes far beyond the market, although around it we will see theater groups doing street performances, night fire shows, workshops, craftsmen … thousands of people wandering the streets of Frigiliana. The market will give us access, among other spaces, to the House of Culture, a building of the 17th century that houses the cinema cycle, the conferences and the exhibition specially brought to each edition of the festival.
In addition the night transforms this space to become one of the places from which the music will come out.
Intimate, cozy, outdoors, Casa del Apero is the setting for a concert every day of the festival. At about 500 meters, the Plaza de las 3 Culturas will be the place chosen for the most multitudinous concerts.
Throughout the day, from the Plaza de la Iglesia to the Parque de Andalucía, the streets of Frigiliana emanate life, revelry, fiesta, people. The theatrical groups are active morning and afternoon, in a walk through the town we can assault medieval characters or we can meet with belly dancers. If we arrive at Zacatín we will see how in the most emblematic street of the old town artisans work live. As we walk the music will always be present in our tour, the public address installed in all the streets of the town will transport us centuries ago.
This event in Frigiliana offers the tourist a festive offer hardly matchable in the province. Culture is present in the form of conferences, the film cycle is another way of approaching our past and other cultures.
