Corn porridge “invades” Silves

These “will be three days full of flavor”

The 6th edition of the Papas de Milho Exhibition takes place from May 31st to June 2nd, at al-Muthamid square, in Silves. 

These «will be three days full of flavor and in which more than a dozen taverns will present their best corn porridge proposals, also known in the region as xerém», says the Chamber of Silves.

The gastronomic aspect is joined by the musical which features the groups Bombocas and Vira Milho as headliners and other names such as fado singer Sara Gonçalves, João Paulo Cavaco, Roberto Bernardino, Rancho Folclórica Ladeira do Vau, Rui & Miguel and, daily on stage 2, the beat of DJ Set by Carox and the young DJ Cabrita.

There will also be several exhibitors present in the square, who will sell their products in a wide range of areas, such as handicrafts, sweets, local products, jewelry, among many others.

It should be noted that all the taverns will be under the watchful eye and refined taste of the various members of the jury of this event, who will evaluate the taverns to find “The best corn porridge” and “The tavern of the event”. The winners will be announced on Sunday, June 2nd, at 20:30 pm.

The initiative is organized by the Silves Parish Council.
