Organizers (Apega) offer a series of options such as two-, three- and five-hour journeys by night or full day as a way to structure fair goers’ visit.
Each option includes a suggested menu plan for dishes, drinks and desserts, as well as recommendations of activities to complete their visit at the fair, including stops at the Grand Market, the Apega amphitheater, the Pico Hall, the Craft Beer area, and the “Camioncitos del sabor”(small food trucks).
