Food-loving tourists visiting Gibraltar at the start of next month will be able to enjoy one of the Rock’s most popular festivals.
The Calentita event returns this year – on Saturday 8 July – after being postponed since 2029 due to COVID-19. According to the organisers, it will draw on the successful 2022 Jubilita festival, in terms of both size and location.
Gibraltar Cultural Services, under the auspices of the ministry of culture, says it is working closely with the organising bodies, Word of Mouth and Gibmedia, to provide another highly enjoyable food festival. “This year we are hoping to welcome back some of our regular stalls as well as entice new participants.”
Also welcoming Calentita’s return, minister for culture John Cortes said, “I am thrilled that this very popular social and cultural event will be back again this year. It’s a unique way of celebrating and enjoying the diverse cultural identities that make up our wonderful community.”
More information will be available at the festival’s website.
