From November 24th to 26th, the São Francisco and Parnaíba Valleys Development Company (Codevasf) will hold the 19th Regional Crafts and Products Fair. The event will bring together dozens of artisans and family producers at the headquarters of the Codevasf Regional Superintendency, in Aracaju (SE). This year, Feirão celebrates 20 years of existence.
There, creations from the most varied origins will be displayed, such as ceramic pieces, products carved from wood, items made from straw, as well as embroidery, crochet and lace. The event will also open space for the sale of various culinary specialties and ornamental plants. The space will open at 8am, and entry is free, with parking available for visitors.
The official opening ceremony with the presence of authorities will be held on the 24th. The event has the support of the Sergipe State Government and has a partnership with municipal governments and artisans associations.
The Feirão functions as a showcase for artisans and family producers from Sergipe to present and sell their production. In addition to selling directly to the public present at the event, exhibitors have the opportunity to close partnerships and deals to supply pieces throughout the year, which contributes to the generation of income and the sustainability of artisanal production.
The regional superintendent of Codevasf in Sergipe, Jefferson Costa, states that the current edition of the fair will feature new features, with the expansion of the space where the stands will be installed. “The entire team is committed to organizing this event, which is already a tradition and represents a great business opportunity for participants”, he highlights.
The fair returns after a four-year hiatus, with the last edition held in 2019. In the following three years, its holding was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions in force at the time. The Regional Crafts and Products Fair was created by Codevasf in 2003 and, two decades later, has consolidated itself as the company’s main support initiative for Sergipe’s crafts.
