With the beginning of the 2000s, when the 28th edition of the Bembibre’s Botillo Festival the Farm and Food Fair from Bierzo was born. An initiative that emerged as a parallel activity that wanted to enrich the gastronomic event of Bembibre.
It was presented as an opportunity to get closer to the agro-food world of the region, located in a marquee placed in Santa Bárbara de Bembibre square.
It caught the attention of the population, which encouraged the local authorities to continue with this initiative. And so they did and the fair continued to grow over the years.
