Feria International de David 2010

I had a question come in today related to the 2010 David International Fair. By using Google, I was able to find that the 2010 official website is up and can be seen HERE.

In case you are interested, the fair will run from March 11 through March 21. I always try to go and take some photos. The post on the 2009 fair can be seen HERE.

  1. Thanks for the photos and the link to the fair of years past. Where exactly in David are the fairgrounds? I’ll have friends visiting, arriving on March 20, so you just provided the perfect information for what we’ll do on Sunday the 21st! Thanks!

  2. Hi Ray. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.

    Hi Don. If you drive down the street in front of Super 99, when you get to the corner that has El Podoroso, make a right and. Stay on this street and you will run into the fir grounds.

    The fair always brings great memories to me. My first job was collecting the tickets at the entrance of the fair (15 yo) I earned $60 for the 10 days run. Another year I worked before the fair started painting buildings, stables, floors, etc. I also worked coordinating the crew selling the tickets and collecting them. I even worked on the Skate rink offered on the fair before its run. There is nothing in Panama like the David fair.
    Looking forward to your pictures…do not forget you are going to get a cold one this year!

  4. Do you know what day the horse parade (cabalgata) is this year…if it is Thursday the 18th or Friday the 19th?

  5. For sure, there is always a cabalgata in the afternoon March 19 (St´Joseph´s day; he is the patron of David). If I had more info, I´d be glad to provide it.

  6. Can someone tell me the dimensions of the Feria? its funny me being from Panama dont know… Im living far away and loved visiting everyyear…

  7. for anybody going to the feria do you know that if you pay $2 to park your car in the street outside, the Municipality of David guarantee that any damage or theft of your car will be paid for!!!!
    The cop who hassled me when I refused to pay on the grounds that I was on a public highway was called A Sonju.
    Anybody want to follow it up?????
    I do not care about the 2 bucks I just hate people lying to me!!
    If any body has contacts in the muni please let me know.

  8. Hi Norman, They charged last year. The people collecting should have identification showing that they are allow to collect parking fees and put a slip on your car showing that you have paid.
