If you’re in Andorra this autumn from the 4th to the 20th of November, you can’t miss the Andorra Shopping Festival. The shopping areas of Andorra and Escaldes are filled with discounts, shows and entertainment from Friday to Sunday to enjoy the shopping festival.
Music and live shows
A number of live musical performances are scheduled in different locations. One of them is the old quarter of the capital, which becomes an open-air stage where you can also enjoy a drink in one of its bars. The central Plaça Coprínceps in Escaldes-Engordany will also host some of the concerts and is ideal for a stop while you go shopping. The main streets will host travelling shows during the three weekends of the Andorra Shopping Festival, an activity to enjoy with the whole family!
Animation in the museums
As in previous editions, art is one of the backbones of the Andorra Shopping Festival. The Carmen Thyssen Museum, the CAEE, the Motorcycle Museum, the Electricity Museum, Casa Cristo and the Columba space will host the performance “De ferro i fang”, a play with music and dance created by the Andorra National Stage Foundation. Admission is free, but advance booking is required, as seating is limited. If you have not visited these museums in Andorra yet, this is a good opportunity to do so.
Activities for children
There’s room for everyone at the shopping festival! The youngest members of the family are in luck because they will enjoy super fun activities and workshops just for them. Children, accompanied by their families, will be able to attend the musical Cinderella and Coco, musical shows that will make them sing and dance. They will also be able to take part in craft workshops where they can test their creativity while learning at the same time.
Gastronomy at a high level
Along with the shopping festival come the famous autumn gastronomic days. Andorra’s restaurants present a menu based on a common local ingredient. A large number of establishments throughout the country are taking part, and as a new feature this year, they are offering a tapa as a way of sampling their menu.
The Andorra Shopping Festival is here once again this year to liven up the November shopping weekends. You can consult the full programme of the event here.
