The meeting will be held from March 10 to 13 and the organization promises that it will take place in a safe environment
The XXIII Fair for the Elderly of Extremadura takes place at Feria Badajoz (Ifeba) from March 10 to 13 with activities such as a concert by Los Chichos, together with an exhibition of models of Easter steps or Family Day with workshops intergenerational.
The delegate councilor of Ifeba, Blanca Subirán, presented the fair this Thursday accompanied by the director of the event, Pepa Dueñas.
The mayor pointed out that “neither Russia, nor Putin, nor covid are going to prevent” the event from being held, which could not be held last year.
In fact, it was the last fair that could be held in 2020 before the pandemic. Subiran explained that many meetings have been held with associations, the Sepad, the Department for the Elderly, the Red Cross, or professional associations, and all “saw the opportunity to hold it because they trusted that it would take place in a safe environment.”

Councilor of Ifeba
The programming of this fair presents a multitude of workshops, talks and activities aimed mainly at having fun for the elderly and making the workshops educational. At the same time, the celebration of a great concert by Los Chichos advanced in terms of entertainment, together with other activities such as the renewal of the DNI, or the collaboration of the Municipal Chamber of Campomayor with a recreation of its traditional ‘Festas do povo’.
As a novelty, there will be an exhibition of models of Holy Week steps donated by Ramón López Tercero with the collaboration of the Association of Brotherhoods of Badajoz; and like every year, Sunday March 15 will be Family Day.
In parallel, talks will be held on active aging or the development of manual or mental skills; and there will be a big dance floor with the Casablanca Orchestra.
The councilor thanked the collaboration of Coca Cola and the Ministry of Ecological Transition, who are going to hold recycling workshops. Meanwhile, another of the main activities will have gastronomy as the protagonist with tastings of local products with the collaboration of the Extremadura XI Brigade, whose soldiers will be in charge of preparing the tastings, in which the safety of the participants will be ensured, with two large dining rooms instead of one to avoid possible risks when removing the mask.
In this sense, Subirán recalled that the use of masks is mandatory inside “and more for this group”, for which changes have been made in the distribution of the fair “precisely to avoid close contact at the time when , for the tastings, you have to take off the mask ». In any case, and if the weather allows it, these tastings or certain activities will be outside.
