hi the Banana festival in madalena do mar 20-21 july is not listed is it still happening?
if its not there on the list its probably a mistake. We have lived in Madeira most of the year for several years and its always on and attended by the Minister for Agriculture. When we see it confirmed we will post.
Amostra da Banana =The "Banana Exposure" is organized by Cooperativa de Produtores (CP da Ponta do Sol) and take place in Madalena do Mar on the 6th and 7th of July and it is listed on the events.
thanks for confirming that 'The Amostra da Banana' is taking place in Madalena do Mar on the 6th and 7th of July and also does not clash with Festa da Lapa!
Now I am confused this was on Madeira live web site
Banana Exhibit (Mostra Regional de Banana) – Madalena do Mar – 20-21
Every year in July, Madalena do Mar celebrates one of the most important local products with the Regional Banana Exhibition. Owing to the fact that Madeira’s biggest banana plantations found here the Festival, which serves to promote the product and old traditional practices, is recognised as a major cultural event. Visitors can enjoy great entertainment, banana sampling and traditional delicacies.
its not unknown for there to be different dates on different websites! You could contact the SRA the Department of Agriculture in Funchal or the Junta da Freguesia of Madalena do Mar to confirm the dates! Good luck!
