Get your sunscreen ready because the annual International Fair of David starts this Thursday. The fair’s website can be seen HERE.

This is the largest fair and expo that happens in this part of Panama all year.

Go early. Go Often. Stay late if you are brave and like to party!

    Please do not tease me! Last time I went to the “feria” was 18 years ago! There is no better fair in Panama. I wish I could go for at least one day.

  2. I do not remember when was the last time I visited the fair. My mom and sister will be selling crafts this year.

  3. why the most important day 19 de marzo dia de San Jose de David there is no fair? I wish I could go too!

  4. The reason there is no fair on March 19 (the day of the Patron Saint of David, San Jose), is because this year that day falls on Holy Week and you can not have the fair going during that time.

  5. Hi Juan, Jonathan, and Jaime. Thanks for adding comments.

    Juan, if you will let me know where your mom and sister will be selling crafts, I will stop in and say, “hola”.

  6. Hello, everyone. This part of Panama is truly paradise.Staying in Boquete for the month and would like to visit the Fair. Couple of hours will probably be enough to wear us out so could you offer some suggestions on things we should not miss ? Went to the beach at Las Olas yesterday and had a great time, mile after mile of pristine sand and saw 6 sunbathers.Coming from frigid Canada this was truly a joy and I will definitely be going back. The local people are genuinely friendly and although we have only a few words of Spanish they show infinite patience and humor at our attempts to communicate.

  7. Hi Dave. I would at least drive up to Volcan. I think Parque Cervantes in David is nice. Often there will be something going on there. There is plenty to see. Impossible to describe it all. You will stay busy.
