The opening day of the festival saw a huge crowd populating the square on Avenida Augusta in Jávea as soon as the doors to this years event was opened.
Several nationalities we´re still busy finalizing the decorations of their stalls, preparing their homemade dishes and firing up their bbqs when tourists, expats and Spaniards alike started streaming into the festival area.

This year the International Festival runs from Thursday to Saturday, both days included. A stroll round the many stalls from exotic places such as Uruguay, Philippines, Indonesia and Venezuela revealed a fresh influx of tasty dishes on the menus.
However fear not, if you´re headed to the festival in hope of treating yourself to long term popular classics such as German bbq ribs, English hamburgers (a traditional English dish?) or the French desserts from heaven, you won´t be disappointed.
Grab your kids, extended family and friends for a fun day out at the International Festival. Challenge your taste buds with Uruguayan asado or spicy Colombian vegetarian dishes, enjoy the open air live music from stage and feel the vibe of all the cultures coming together and each stall taking pride in presenting the best their home country has to offer!
