Trout & Cider Festival, Santana
May 24 all-day
The Casa do Povo of São Roque do Faial will organize the IX Festival of the Trout / Cider Route / XXVI Meeting of Cultural Groups of the Municipality of Santana.  This project promotes the typical products of the parish, trout and cider, in order to leverage the local and regional economy, thus increasing the income of farmers and restaurateurs. This party will take place throughout the parish and intends to involve as many people as possible. At Ribeiro Frio, there will be traditional music, free cider,  and a demonstration of sport fishing. At Achada do Cedro Gordo we will provide training to cider producers, whose objective is to sensitize farmers to produce more pears / apples and use of abandoned orchards. There will be a blind test of cider with the local producers, where the best cider will be awarded. In the center of the parish we will have the gastronomy and the musical animation provided by the cultural groups of Santana and live music with  Álvaro Florença & Band.
