Fairway is the third forum with a fair and congress on the Way of St. James, which will be held from February 10 to 12, 2019 at the Palace of Congresses and Exhibitions of Galicia.
As a product of the reflection that many visitors who come to Compostela do not walk The Way, from Fairway with the creation of this route for the 3rd edition we want to offer the opportunity of stepping out of the classical touristic circuits and also enjoy a closer touch with the city. Also, with I Camino, Santiago's neighbours will also be able to discover unknown areas of their city regarding the Camino which is always present but maybe not very recognised by the local community.
Become a true pilgrim. Follow the yellow arrow until you find the Fairway cairn. There you can dress yourself like the classic pilgrims and take a picture to share on all your social networks.
The fair is the showcase that offers visibility in Fairway to all those companies, organizations, institutions or destinations that want to publicize their products or resources linked to the Camino de Santiago, being also the ideal framework for professionals and the general public to know them and establish a first contact with the latest developments in the sector.
The old belongings of a mysterious pilgrim have been found in the cellars of the Compostelaan Palace of Congress, but a fateful curse weighing on them has caused strange phenomena to start happening in the building.
Mindfulness refers to the mental state that emerges by paying attention to the present moment intentionally, without judging it and focusing on the immediate experience.

The children (from 5 to 12) will get a chance to touch, knead and present dishes in an entertaining fashion, in a workshop in which our chef will undoubtedly make his mark on his Fairway pupils.
Everyone who visits Fairway on Sunday will have the opportunity to approach the gastronomy of the Camino de Santiago with a buffet where they can enjoy a selection of some of the most recognized dishes of the places through which the different Jacobean itineraries take place. Bon appetit!

María Rivera will offer a talk for all those interested in knowing what is needed and what steps to take to make the pilgrimage with our best friend a success.

In addition, he is in possession of the canine credential after doing the Camino with his dog Mai in 2018.
If the roads are not maintained, the roads are lost. Humanity would not be understood without its vocation of displacement, roads are the reflection of the collectivity and metaphor of one's own life, because the roads are made for people to walk, and not for a single person, but also each person internalizes the paths with the measure of their effort, pace, need and goals.
Our most international bagpiper is about to start her tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of her first record but she will be first with us at Fairway to offer a small performance. Are you going to miss it?
