The way it works is that you buy tickets when you arrive at €1 per ticket, and small dishes and glasses of wine can then be purchased for one or two tickets. You’ll also be asked to leave a ticket deposit on your wine tasting glasses, but take them home – they’re excellent!

A free bus service was available last year from Costa Teguise to La Villa on the Saturday, so we expect the same to happen this year.

Visitors can make use of the Teguise Sunday market buses to access the food fair on the second day of the event. The market runs normally when this event is on.
