For the first time in history, the National Festival of Exaltation of Botillo de Bembibre has not been able to be held as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The current health situation forced the municipal authorities to cancel the celebration of the National Festival of Exaltation of Botillo in 2021. An event that, due to its characteristics, brings together more than a thousand people each year to exalt the ‘king’ sausage in Bierzo.
Due to this face-to-face nature of the event, given the current health circumstances, the Bembibre City Council agreed to suspend the XLIX National Festival of Exaltation of Botillo. The same edition is kept for the year 2022.
