The 18th February 2011 Bembibre’s council oficialy opened the Bembibre Arena. The Bembibre Arena emerged as a multipurpose venue, and among its non-sports uses it was proposed that it be the headquarters of the Farm and Food Fair, as it has been since the inauguration of the pavilion. For the occasion, Manuel Chaves Third Vice President of the Government attended the event.
It opened its doors within the framework of the Farm and Food Fair that took place a week before Bembibre’s botillo festival. The aim was to use to take advantage of the recently opened pavilion for the gala dinner of the XXXIX Bembibre’s National Festival for the Exaltation of Botillo.
